Receiver Tanner Gentry (6-2, 190) and safety Xavier Lewis (6-0, 190) were two of the more highly-touted football recruits Wyoming signed in its 2013 recruiting class.
Both went to high school in Aurora, Colo. Gentry at Grandview and Lewis at Eaglecrest. Both were rivals in high school, but both are now friends and have been working out together since they signed with UW in February.

This is what Lewis said about what he hopes to accomplish at UW when he and Gentry get there June 16 for summer school and voluntary workouts.
“I want to go in there and be able to make a positive impact immediately,” he said. “Whether that is starting or trying to compete for a starting job. “I want to push all my teammates and help the program. I think Wyoming is going in the right direction and I am looking forward to getting there.”
