That's not all.

The two-time All-American wide receiver spoke about what got him to Laramie, his favorite moments in a Cowboys uniform and his thoughts on the current state of the game, mainly NIL and the transfer portal.

Spoiler: Yarborough admitted he almost left the university after his freshman season. The transition from the Chicago suburbs to the high plains was a big one.

He also chatted about his mentor and how important it was for him to help young players in the program, especially Marcus Harris, who would go on to break his all-time yardage record.

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.
