Wyoming’s 2012 football recruiting class didn’t have a player from Colorado.
Its 2013 class does.
Tanner Gentry, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound receiver from Grandview High in Aurora, Colo., verbally committed to UW Tuesday. Gentry is the third verbal commitment to the Cowboys’ 2013 class.
Here is a link to some of Gentry’s junior highlights at Grandview
Gentry caught 50 passes for 693 yards and seven touchdowns last season as a junior, and was among the state leaders as a safety with 10 interceptions. He is projected to play receiver at UW. Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Gregg Brandon was the primary recruiter of Gentry, and for UW in Colorado.
I really like the fact UW got a verbal commitment from a Colorado prospect this early, especially one as talented as Gentry. Colorado needs to be a good recruiting area for the Cowboys, and this get shouldn’t hurt that cause. What do you think about that, folks?
