LARAMIE -- Some were shocked ... some weren't.

Others voiced their approval and many send their well-wishes.

Wyoming's sophomore quarterback Tyler Vander Waal entered the transfer portal Tuesday morning, meaning he can receive contact from college coaches around the country who would want his services. Though Vander Waal is still planing to play in the Arizona Bowl in Tucson Dec. 31, that will be his last game in a Wyoming uniform.

Vander Waal threw for 1,822 yards and six touchdowns during his career in Laramie. He compiled a 6-10 record for the Cowboys over the past two seasons, while splitting time with Sean Chambers and Levi Williams under center.

The Elk Grove, Calif., native had the tall task of replacing a legend at Wyoming in Josh Allen. He started the first eight games of his redshirt freshman season before being replaced by Chambers full-time before the Colorado State game.



Coach Craig Bohl gives his statement on Vander Waal's departure at the signing day press conference Dec. 18.
