Jones, Lee Commit to Wyoming

The Wyoming Cowboys picked up two more commitments from a defensive line and offensive line prospects on Monday.

Jake Jones, a 6-foot-4, 285-pound offensive lineman from Lakewood High in Lakewood, Colo., and Gary Lee, a 6-5, 285-pound defensive tackle from Victory Christian High in Tulsa, Okla., gave the Cowboys 25 players to their class.

Lee was recruited heavily and received offers from Tulsa, Lousiana-Monroe, Louisiana Tech, Missouri State, and Arkansas State, while receiving a strong look from the Missouri Tigers.

UW head coach Dave Christensen visited Lee in his hometown of Tulsa on Monday and sealed the deal.

Lee is a legit prospect as both a offensive linemen and D-linemen, though he'll be tried initially on the defensive side of the ball at UW.

The Cowboys are high on the ability of the big framed athlete and see a great deal of potential from him.

Jones is another prospect who should bring athleticism and size to the Cowboys offensive line. He didn't begin sending film to college programs until later while his recruitment then began to pickup momentum.

"Jake is very athletic for his size and he has got some strength to him where he can just throw people around," Lakewood defensive coordinator John Bacon told BuffStampede.com. "The kid is very coachable. He is able to take whatever he needs to work on and he is going to make it into his strong suit."

Colorado, Stanford, Oregon State and Tennessee are among the colleges that expressed interest. Both Wyoming and Air Force offered him a scholarship.

The Cowboys likely will get one more commitment from a defensive back visiting the campus over the weekend.

National signing day is set for February 2nd.
