Wyoming redshirt sophomore QB Aaron Young will transfer.

"After an unforgettable two years of creating lifelong friendships and memories, I have decided to transfer from the University of Wyoming," Young wrote on Twitter. A member of HC Craig Bohl's first recruiting class, Young spent 2015 buried on the depth chart behind senior Cameron Coffman and sophomores Josh Allen and Nick Smith. All three of those guys started at least one game, while Young didn't throw a pass, presumably prompting his decision to leave.

Wyoming sophomore RB Brian Hill was named the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week.

Hill demolished UNLV to the tune of 232 yards and a touchdown on 35 carries in Saturday's 35-28 victory. It was his fourth effort of at least 200 rushing yards in what's been a stellar 2015 campaign. For the season, the 6-foot-1, 211-pound sophomore's rumbled for 1,631 yards and six touchdowns. The 1,631 yards are a single-season school record. His has been one of the more unheralded great rushing seasons on the books in 2015, due mostly to the fact that he plays for the 2-10 Cowboys.

Wyoming junior WR Tanner Gentry (shoulder) won't play against this year.

Gentry ranked No. 15 nationally with 678 receiving yards after seven games, at which point he suffered an AC joint separation and two tears in his right shoulder against Nevada on Oct. 17. "It’s been really frustrating," Gentry said. "This is my first major injury that I’ve ever had playing football where I’ve had to sit out games, so it’s kind of tough to deal with. I’m just trying to stay positive." Because another tear could permanently damage his shoulder and end his football career, the decision has been made to shut things down this season. "They just kind of told me that they thought six weeks was what it was going to be," Gentry said of the original prognosis. "We were just going to see how I progressed and if I was healing fast, then I would see if I could get out there or not and if it was safe for me to play or not." Added UW offensive coordinator Brent Vigen: "If it’s a situation where he can get hurt worse because he’s not quite

Wyoming junior WR Tanner Gentry (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against San Diego State.

It will be his fourth consecutive game missed. Gentry suffered a dislocated AC joint back in Week 7 against Nevada. His recovery timeline has exhausted, so you can expect him back any week now. The Cowboys are excited for that. Gentry's 96.9 yards per game would rank No. 14 in the FBS if he'd played enough to qualify.

Wyoming sophomore RB Brian Hill rushed for 201 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 58-27 thrashing at the hands of Utah State.

Hill tried his darnedest, but the Cowboy defense just couldn't stop Utah State. This was his third 200-yard rushing game of the season. Wyoming's 1-8 anyway. Pity for the 6-foot-1, 211-pound sophomore, who has rumbled for 1,262 yards and four touchdowns across nine games. He deserves better than this.

Wyoming sophomore RB Brian Hill rushed for 76 yards on 23 carries in Saturday's 34-14 loss to Boise State.

Hill averaged a vanilla 3.3 YPC in Saturday's loss to the Broncos. This marked just the third time through eight games that the 6-foot-1, 211-pound sophomore's failed to rush for at least 100 yards. Overall, he's rushed for 1,061 yards and three touchdowns. Despite Hill's magnificent work, Wyoming sits at a sad panda 1-7. He's a reliable DFS runner in terms of yardage, but obviously, the lack of consistent touchdown production is troubling.

Wyoming senior QB Cameron Coffman left Saturday's contest against Boise State with an undisclosed injury.

Coffman headed for the locker room in the third quarter, with redshirt freshman Nick Smith taking over in his absence. The specific nature of Coffman's injury has yet to be made public, but expect further details to be provided in the coming days.

Wyoming senior QB Cameron Coffman completed 18-of-20 passes for 213 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 28-21 win over Nevada.

Coffman had excellent protection (sacked just once) and was able to survey the field with ease on the way to completing 90% of his passes. The 6-foot-2, 198-pound senior threw touchdown passes of 18, 27 and 12 yards--all in the second quarter of play. He's now thrown for 1,504 yards with a 14/6 TD/INT ratio.

Wyoming sophomore RB Brian Hill received 33 carries and rushed for 188 yards in Saturday's 28-21 win over Nevada.

Hill averaged a healthy 5.7 yards per carry. Despite the season-high 33 carries, he was held out of the end zone for the fifth time in seven games this season. It would be nice to see the 6-foot-1, 211-pound sophomore score more often than he does, but there's no quibbling with his 985 rushing yards.

Wyoming OC Brent Vigel said that the team "need[s] to keep feeding [sophomore RB Brian Hill] the ball."

"[Hill]’s just a very explosive runner, very determined runner," said Vigel. The Cowboys' OC particularly likes Hill's toughness, noting that the sophomore has "a little bit of a hard edge." The 6-foot-1, 211-pounder has pounded his way to some impressive totals this season, with 412 total rushing yards (best in the Mountain West), including 242-yard and 139-yard efforts over the last two weeks. He's averaging 8.1 YPC. On Saturday, the Cowboys host a New Mexico squad that's allowing 142 rushing yards per game. Expect Hill to receive 20+ carries as he looks to log a third consecutive contest with at least 139 yards rushing.

Wyoming senior QB Cameron Coffman said that his confidence will "be a little better" every week.

Coffman transferred to Wyoming from Indiana in 2013 and sat out the 2014 season as per NCAA regulations. He completed just over half his passes for 282 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Cowboys' season-opening loss to North Dakota before missing their second game with a sprained right MCL. In Saturday's showdown against Washington State, though, he started and went 25-of-36 for 296 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. OC Brent Vigen said, "He’s done a good job and I thought he threw the ball accurately [versus Washington State]." New Mexico heads to Laramie this weekend.

Wyoming junior LB D.J. May has been suspended for Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan due to a violation of team rules.

A converted running back, the 5-foot-11, 196-pound junior recorded four tackles while logging two kickoff returns for 68 total yards in Saturday's loss to North Dakota. The team didn't specify the exact reason for his suspension beyond "violation of team rules," but according to the Casper Star-Tribune, May was arrested on Sunday and charged with interference. This could be a possible cause for the suspension, but again, the team is not specifying.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter writes that it's "impossible to not enjoy watching [Wyoming senior edge rusher Eddie Yarbrough] play."

"The first-team All-Mountain West defensive end reminds me of Lamarr Woodley in that he overcomes a lack of height with long arms on the edge," Reuter wrote. "His phenomenal motor isn't necessarily even reflected in his statistics but is immediately evident when you turn on his tape. Teams looking for a 4-3 end or 3-4 Sam 'backer (yes, he is agile enough to play standing up) should consider him a strong Day Two value." The 6-foot-3, 252-pounder had 63 tackles, 10.5 TFL and four sacks in 2014.

Former UCLA junior CB Jalen Ortiz transferred to Wyoming.

Ortiz must sit out this season to satisfy NCAA rules. He'll have two seasons of eligibility remaining beginning in 2016. "When I announced that I was transferring, they had initial interest in me," Ortiz said. "I did some research and we did some talking. The interest grew from there, the feeling and the relationship." Ortiz was a three-star recruit out of high school, rated as the No. 27 athlete in the country. He began his career at WR before shifting to corner last year.
