  The "nickel back" position Wyoming's 4-2-5 alignment is critical to the unit's success and requires a versatile hybrid player with cornerback skills and a linebacker mentality. "It's a complicated position," UW head coach Craig Bohl said, noting the nickelback must understand coverages, run fits, blitz concepts, quarterback progressions and make split-second checks at the line of scrimmage.

The Cowboys appear to be at least 15 cents deep at nickel. Keonte Glinton is penciled in as the starter as UW pushes through fall camp, but true freshman Malique Singleton is expected to get on the field this season and redshirt freshman Buck Coors is also making a push. Glinton had a strong season for the Pokes appearing in 11 games for the Pokes with 11 starts. He finished the season with 10 tackles with nine solo stops and one assisted tackle. He recorded one interception on the season and had three pass breakups. He recorded a career-high four tackles for the Cowboys against Colorado State. He also recorded his first career interception against the Rams. He added two tackles for the Pokes against Ball State. He was named Academic All-MW. - Wyoming Tribune

  After going 12 of 21, with 201 yards and two touchdowns, with the first team offense in the spring game, while completing as many passes as the rest of the quarterbacks combined, it seemed pretty obvious Utah State transfer Andrew Peasley was the frontrunner to take the reins of the offense. The Cowboys still haven't made an official announcement on who the starter will be, but comments from his teammates since training camp started indicate Peasley is set to be the guy behind center to start 2022. He bulked up to around 214 pounds this summer on a heavy diet of teriyaki chicken and white rice, and believes he's at the ideal weight for him to have the best blend of strength and speed. He's spent the offseason building chemistry with his wide-outs and tight ends, but sophomore receiver Joshua Cobbs, who figures to be the Pokes' go-to receiver this fall, says this connection has come naturally since day one in Laramie. - Wyoming Tribune Eagle

  The University of Wyoming was left out of the Mountain West's 2022 preseason all-conference team and awards, which were voted on by members of the media and unveiled Thursday morning. Fresno State senior quarterback Jake Haener was voted the league's preseason offensive player of the year, while San Jose State senior defensive lineman Cade Hall shared defensive player of the year honors with San Diego State defensive back Patrick McMorris. SDSU return specialist Jordan Byrd was tabbed as the conference's preseason special teams player of the year. Gibbs will replace All-American Chad Muma, who was drafted in the third round by the Jacksonville Jaguars after finishing second in the FBS with 142 tackles, at middle linebacker. Gibbs was second on the team with 90 tackles from the weak side in 2021. - Casper Star-Tribune

  The University of Wyoming landed its second Power Five transfer in the past two weeks Thursday, as former USC wide receiver Chase Locke announced his decision to join the Cowboys. Locke joins Alabama defensive end Keelan Cox, who committed shortly after the spring game April 30, as the Pokes' most recent high-profile additions. Locke did not see the field in his three years at USC, but he enjoyed a successful high school career while playing in the two highest classifications in Texas.

The San Antonio product earned second-team All-District 26-5A honors as a junior in 2017 after catching 52 passes for 659 yards and seven touchdowns at Boerne Champion. He followed that up with first-team All-District 28-6A honors in 2018, as he hauled in 36 catches for 672 yards and eight touchdowns, while helping lead San Antonio O'Connor to an undefeated regular season. - Wyoming Tribune Eagle

  Andrew Peasley looked like Wyoming's next starting quarterback during the spring game. The Utah State transfer passed for 201 yards with a 67-yard touchdown to tight end Jackson Marcotte and a 35-yard touchdown to wide receiver Jaylen Sargent. UW head coach Craig Bohl did not release a post-spring depth chart. The quarterback competition between Peasley, Evan Svoboda, Hank Gibbs, Jayden Clemons and incoming freshman Caden Becker will continue throughout fall camp. One of the keys to the 2022 season will be what Peasley and the Pokes do this summer when no one is looking. "Peasley is learning our offense and is still a work in progress, but I do think he's got some maturity," Bohl said after the spring game. "He was able to be resourceful with the football. It's important he has a good summer." Peasley, a backup with the Mountain West champion Aggies, arrived on campus in January and quickly earned the respect of his new teammates by trying to lead them through winter conditioning. At Utah State the 6-2, 210-pound junior from La Grande, Oregon, ran for 510 yards and three touchdowns, including a 62-yard touchdown scamper against New Mexico in 2020. - Casper Star-Tribune

  Ole Miss transfer Jakorey Hawkins was the Wyoming Cowboys' highest-rated portal addition this offseason, and he certainly lived up to the hype. UW coach Craig Bohl praised Hawkins as much as any defensive player throughout the spring, with his athleticism, Power Five experience and relationship with defensive coordinator Jay Sawvel allowing him to step seamlessly into a pass defense that led the MW last season. He recorded four tackles, three solo stops, one pass breakup and one interception in the spring game, and was in position to make two more picks. - Wyoming Tribune Eagle

  Wyoming offensive lineman Logan Harris remains an undrafted free agent. Harris was a starter on three Wyoming bowl championship teams in 2017, 2019 and 2021 and earned All-Mountain West honors three consecutive years. He started 43 of 54 games for the Cowboys. Harris began by starting at center for all 13 games during his true freshman season of 2017. He was part of a Wyoming offense led by quarterback Josh Allen. The 2017 Cowboys won the Potato Bowl and posted an 8-5 record. Harris then started all 11 games at right guard during the 2019 season, including Wyoming's victory in the 2019 Arizona Bowl. - Wyoming Tribune Eagle

  Wyoming QB Andrew Peasley led the Gold to a 26-22 win over the Brown in the Cowboys' spring game. The Brown signal-callers, Evan Svoboda and Jayden Clemons, wore white jerseys, which meant they were free game. But there was some clarity during the Cowboys' 114-play game. Peasley looked like a heavy favorite to be the starter when the season kicks off Aug. 27 at Illinois. The Utah State transfer finished 12-for-21 passing for 201 yards with two touchdowns on a windy afternoon. The other three quarterbacks were a combined 12-for-34 passing for 97 yards with no touchdowns. - Casper Star-Tribune

  Mississippi transfer cornerback Jakorey Hawkins stole the spotlight with an interception and two other deflections during Wyoming's spring game in his War Memorial Stadium debut. "Jakorey is learning our defense and really applying the skills that (cornerbacks) coach (Benny) Boyd is teaching him," Bohl said. "He has meshed in with our locker room and he has good speed and play-making ability." - Casper Star-Tribune

  Treyton Welch showed the opening day crowd of 27,007 at War Memorial Stadium what is possible for the Cowboys in the passing game. The 6-foot-3, 242-pound tight end made a one-handed touchdown grab to deliver a dramatic 19-16 victory for Wyoming over Montana State. But over the final 12 games of the disappointing 7-6 finish, Welch only had one additional touchdown reception, but he still led UW's tight ends with 19 receptions for 163 yards and the two scores in 2021. With the departure of star wide receiver Isaiah Neyor - who had 19 more receptions, 580 more receiving yards and 10 more touchdowns than anyone on the team - will the Pokes target their talented tight ends more often in 2022? "Our room is ready to do whatever we're called to do," Welch said. "Hopefully that's more in the passing game this year, but if it's not we're going to block our hearts out." - Casper Star-Tribune

  Sophomore Parker Christensen and junior Treyton Welch were the most productive tight ends on the Wyoming roster last season, combining for 290 yards on 32 catches. Welch had two touchdown catches, the most among UW returners, including a 21-yard, one-handed grab in the final moments of the season-opener that helped the Pokes avoid an upset at the hands of FCS Montana State. Christensen, meanwhile, is a former Wyoming Gatorade Player of the Year who has displayed comfort playing out of the backfield, on the line or split out wide.

Wyoming tight ends coach Shannon Moore says the pair's versatility, experience and leadership traits are major assets heading into next season. "They're both a little bit different with what they bring to the table, and they're both good in the run game and the pass game. Parker is probably a guy that we'll split out a little more, but Treyton will be a guy we split out, too. They really compliment each other well, and they give us a lot of versatility with personnel and formations." - Wyoming Tribune Eagle

  2021 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST SECOND TEAM (COACHES): DB - C.J. Coldon, Jr., Wyoming,...Coldon helped lead a Wyoming defense that ranked No. 7 in the nation in pass defense, allowing opponents only 177.5 yards per game. He was credited with nine pass breakups on the season to rank No. 8 in the conference. Coldon was credited with 66 tackles from his cornerback position, which ranked him No. 3 on the Cowboy team and ranked him No. 31 in the conference among all players at all positions. - Wyoming Football

  2021 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST SECOND TEAM (COACHES): OL - Keegan Cryder, Sr., Wyoming,...Cryder started his 43rd consecutive game last Saturday in Wyoming's regular-season finale. Those 43 starts include every game of Cryder's career, dating back to his redshirt freshman season of 2018. He has never missed a game during his Wyoming career. He helped pave the way for Wyoming to rank No. 2 in the Mountain West and No. 30 in the nation in rushing offense, averaging 195.1 yards per game. - Wyoming Football
