Want another Wyoming wide receiver to talk about?
How about senior Jarrod Darden.
The 6-foot-5, 220-pound senior who transferred from Colorado but is eligible this season
because he graduated from CU in the spring, caught three passes for 95 yards and a touchdown working with the No. 2 offense during Sunday’s first scrimmage of fall camp.
His TD catch was 46 yards, and he had a nice one-handed catch for 40 yards later on. All of his catches came from sophomore backup quarterback Jason Thompson.
“They have me in the slot, which I haven’t played before, and this is a new kind of offense for me,” Darden said. “I played in more of a pro-style offense at Colorado, but I like this offense a lot.”
Darden said he transferred from Colorado because he went through three coaching changes in four years, and he was simply “tired of it.”
Darden said he looked for schools that threw the ball a lot, and UW fit the description.
“At Colorado I was burried on the depth chart and a new coach was coming in. I wanted to go a school that wanted me and could use me. Right now I feel like I can contribute. If I keep making plays, hopefully they can use me.
“This is the best I felt during camp in a while. I am getting feedback and reps. I will enjoy this day, but our first two-a-days are Monday so I can’t enjoy it for long before it is time to get back to work.”
