2015 Wyoming football recruiting: Cowboys pick up two more verbals on the weekend

The Wyoming Cowboys pick up commitments from Washington and Arizona stand-outs.

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Wyoming is nearing the finish line with their 2015 recruiting class after yet another productive recruiting weekend.  The Cowboys landed 6'1", 185-pound wide receiver Justice Murphy out of Vancouver (WA) Evergreen and 6'3", 220-pound athlete Skylor Clinton out of Prescott (AZ).  After the two verbals, it leaves the Cowboys with likely one scholarship left to give in the class.

Murphy is yet another stellar wide receiver get and is considered by many the top receiver prospect in Washington.  He has been committed to Utah but de-committed a day after his visit to the Utes on January 18th.  The Wyoming staff have been on Murphy for a long time, going back to the old Wyoming staff led by Pete Kaligis.

Murphy selected the Cowboys over offers from Oregon State, Utah, Washington State, Eastern Washington, Idaho and Montana.  He was a rated as a 3-star prospect by all the major recruiting services.

Clinton was yet another visitor this past weekend and he committed to the Cowboys Sunday night.  He selected the Cowboys over Western Illinois.

A big reason for Clinton in picking the Cowboys was his bond between the players and his belief where the program is headed.

He will enter Wyoming as a athlete and could play tight end, outside linebacker or defensive end.  He had 27 total touchdowns, rushed for 1,440 yards, had 1,650 total yards on offense and 1,990 all-purpose yards his senior season.  He was a Blue/Grey All-American and 1st-Team All-State in Arizona.
