LARAMIE -- Jay Sawvel and Co. are already busy piecing together the 2025 roster.

Those efforts began with a bang, landing a verbal commitment from three-star defensive back Jovan Clark from Chicago. The 6-foot, 200-pound "athlete" chose Wyoming over Power-5 programs like Georgia, Louisville, Kansas, Syracuse, Missouri and many others. Even Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Notre Dame and Tennessee showed interest in the Morgan Park graduate, according to

Clark, who informed the UW staff on June 12 he intends to sign with the program, capped his junior season with 61 tackles to go along with three interceptions and five pass breakups. He also forced and recovered a fumble, playing at both safety and linebacker in 2023.

Less than 24 hours later, arguably the top recruit in Wyoming also chose the Cowboys. Mason Drube, the starting quarterback at Campbell County High School in Gillette, turned down numerous offers from programs like Michigan State, Boston College, Oregon State and Washington State, among others.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound gunslinger will head to Laramie, where his late father Kirby Drube suited up for the Brown and Gold in the late 90's. The three-star prospect threw for 2,067 yards and 22 touchdowns last fall. He also found the end zone on the ground seven more times.

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
