LARAMIE -- Safety Jerome Cooper entered the transfer portal Thursday, according to, becoming the fifth Wyoming player from last year's squad to leave the program.

A representative from the school confirmed the news Friday.


Cooper, a redshirt freshman from Los Angeles, never played a snap for the Cowboys in 2019. The 6-foot, 179-pound Cooper was a two-star player out of Locke High School.

He was one of nine safeties listed on the Pokes' 2020 roster.

Cooper was one of two safeties signed in the 2019 class, joining Keonte Glinton. Glinton, according to the school's official roster, has been moved to the nickel/ linebacker position.

Defensive tackle Javaree Jackson, defensive back Allen Smith and linebacker Isaiah Abdullah are also in the portal.

Jackson and Smith were dismissed from the team last fall.

Quarterback Tyler Vander Waal entered the portal last December and has since been signed by Idaho State.

Wyoming added kicker/ punter Nick Null in the transfer portal last winter. Null spent the previous three seasons at Cornell.
