UW signs CB from Army Prep

Cortland Fort, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound cornerback who was at Army Prep in 2011 signed with the University of Wyoming Thursday. Fort visited UW last weekend.

Fort is from Etiwanda, Calif., where he attended Etiwanda High. He received a two-star rating out of five by Rivals.com and Scout.com out as a senior in high school where he was a First Team Baseline League pick.

In 2010 he attended the Nike Sparq All-Combine where he was rated as the second-best cornerback and the seventh-best prospect out of 1,300.

UW signed defensive back B.J. Hendrix (5-10, 185) from Rochester (Minn.) Community and Technical College a couple of weeks ago. Hendrix and Fort complete the Cowboys’ 2012 recruiting class.
