LARAMIE -- "We should be pretty deep at the running back position," Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl said with a grin. "We are excited about him."

That's after he announced Wednesday that running back Trey Smith has been granted an additional season by the NCAA.


Smith played in just four games for the Cowboys after transferring from Louisville before his senior season. The Madison, Mississippi, product was lost for the season after sustaining a left leg injury in Wyoming's road loss at Tulsa.

Smith racked 227 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 44 carries in 2019.

Smith, who is the son of former NFL wide receiver, Jimmy Smith, had his best game in a Wyoming uniform in a week two victory over Idaho. Smith rushed the ball 17 times for a career-high 152 yards and two touchdowns. His 75-yard scoring run helped lift the Cowboys over the Vandals, 21-16.

Smith will re-join a crowded backfield, which features first-team All-Mountain West selection, Xazavian Valladay, Titus Swen, Alphonzo Andrews, Brett Brenton, Austin Clemetson, Jeremy Hollingsworth, Dawaiian McNeely, and newest running back recruit, Joseph Braasch.
