Not a lot of big surprises here. Perhaps the biggest is redshirt freshman walk-on Josiah Hall starting at one defensive end spot over sophomore Kevin Prosser. Both will play, but Hall gives UW a little more size at 237 pounds. Prosser is 215. Third-year UW coach Craig Bohl said: “It’s not a knock on Prosser, but more of a compliment to Hall.”

Granderson progressing nicely at defensive end for Cowboys

Wyoming is only four days into fall camp, and when third-year coach Craig Bohl talks to the media after each practice and goes over some of the highlights of individual players, Carl Granderson’s name usually comes up.

Here is Bohl after Thursday’s practice.
