LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Among Wyoming's recent football recruits are a pair of linemen from the neighboring states and a speedy running back out of Texas.
Giving the Cowboys verbal commitments are: Scott Criss, an offensive lineman from Omaha Creighton Prep in Nebraska; Joshua Martin, a defensive end from Aurora Cherokee Trail High School in Colorado; and Alvester Alexander, a running back from C.E. King High School in Houston.
Criss earned Class A All-State first-team honors this past season as a defensive lineman. He had been holding out for a chance to become a Cornhusker but Nebraska wanted him to walk on.
Martin started only one season but as a senior, he made 53 tackles, 10 of which were quarterback sacks.
Alexander has been timed at 4.48 in the 40 and 10.96 in the 100 meters. His senior season, Alexander carried the ball 142 times for 1,140 yards and 16 touchdowns.
