Wyoming Offers Mesquite, Texas Linebacker

The Cowboys are looking down toward Texas to lasso more talent into Laramie for their 2011 signing class and went into familiar stomping grounds of Mesquite, Texas.

Kyle Boyd, a 6-foot-2 and 225 pound linebacker who played with current incoming Wyoming quarterback Emory Miller was offered a scholarship by Dave Christensen's staff early in the recruiting season.

"I played with him so I'm familiar with the school," he said. "He is excited about going up there and playing football. He very much likes the coaches he's going to play for at Wyoming."

Boyd is a physical linebacker who runs well and plays with a hard nose for the football and registered a productive junior season.

"I'm going to go out and play hard. I think that's the intangibles I bring to the field," he said. "You keep your motor running and use those skills to make plays."

Teammates with UW 2010 signee Miller at Horn High School in Mesquite, the Cowboys were able to evaluate Boyd closely while recruiting Miller. The linebacker product comes high on the Pokes list.

Boyd has to-date received officials offers from the Wyoming and the Iowa State Cyclones, while Oklahoma State is staying in contact.

The Cowboys have worked themselves into the mix for Boyd with the early offer and the chance to play with his former teammate.
