UW football’s biggest gainers

Here are some of the biggest “gains” in terms of Wyoming football players and weight from the end of last season and as spring drills began Tuesday in Laramie.

Weights are from UW’s depth chart prior to its 2015 season-finale against UNLV and its current depth chart before the start of spring football. In the case of running back Brian Hill, I went off the weights he told me personally. Players’ classes in terms of eligibility are listed next to each weight.

    • Allen and Smith are taking a lot of reps this spring. We as media don’t get to see much of the QBs in action during practice but I think it is Allen’s to lose.


  1. RG, any chance you can post the spring depth chart or a link to it? I can’t seem to find it anywhere.
