DETROIT, Mich., -- Wyoming's quarterback room shrank by one more Friday when Hank Gibbs announced via social media he would be entering the NCAA Transfer Portal.

Gibbs was one of five signal callers on the current roster.

"I'd like to thank everyone at the University of Wyoming for their support," Gibbs penned on Twitter. "I'm a much better man, athlete and QB. I showed up on campus as a walk-on and worked my way to earn a scholarship. I am very appreciative of coach (Craig) Bohl. He does things the right way. Upon graduation this spring , I look forward to the next opportunity to play football for three more years. Always, Go Pokes."

Caden Becker this offseason switched positions and made the move to defensive end. Andrew Peasley, last season's starter, Evan Svoboda, Jayden Clemons and Kaden Anderson all remain on campus. Anderson, a freshman from Texas, is still recovering from ACL surgery and won't likely return to the field until fall camp at the earliest.

Craig Bohl said this spring Peasley and Svoboda are receiving the lion's share of reps. Clemons, Peasley's backup in 2022, is also still in the mix.

Gibbs, a Fayetteville, Ark., native, threw for 2,500 yards and 29 touchdowns while completing 59% of his passes during his senior year of high school. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound three-sport athlete appeared in just a handful of outings during his three seasons in Laramie, all of which he held kicks.

Gibbs' father, Chris Gibbs, played defensive end for the Cowboys from 1984-88.

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.
