Cowboys get second verbal commitment for ’21 class
LARAMIE -- Jovan Marsh became the Cowboys' second known commit of the 2021 recruiting class Sunday, joining Nebraska's Tyce Westland.
Marsh, who is labeled by 247sports.com as an "athlete" will play defensive back in Laramie. The 5-foot, 11-inch, 170-pound speedster from Chicago also received offers from Army, Central Michigan, Eastern Illinois and Eastern Michigan.
Marsh played running back and receiver on offense and roamed the secondary at Marist High School where he tallied 40 tackles, including two for loss. He also picked off a pass and knocked down five more during his junior campaign.
Illinois has been a prominent state for Craig Bohl and Co. since his arrival in Laramie in 2014. Wyoming's all-time leading rusher Brian Hill is from the Land of Lincoln. So are current players Xazavian Valladay, Keyon Blankenbaker, CJ Coldon, Jackson Marcotte and others.
Westland, a defensive end, verbally committed to Wyoming July 23, becoming the first player to share publicly his intentions of joining the Cowboys' recruiting class in 2021.
