The Wyoming faithful has high expectations of its super sophomore.
We turn now to the Mountain West Conference’s 2016 Freshman of the Year, who came out of nowhere to help lead a surprising charge to the top of the Mountain division.
Wyoming’s Logan Wilson made 94 tackles as a redshirt freshman last fall, which ranked sixth among FBS freshman linebackers, 7.5 tackles for loss and three sacks. He also intercepted three passes and scored twice, quickly establishing himself as one of the conference’s best defenders.
If the Cowboys defense can stay healthy around him as Wilson makes the transition to middle linebacker, he and Wyoming could be in for a special season.
