"Guys that are in (the portal) from here, I mean, we wish them well, in that regard," Wyoming's rookie head coach Jay Sawvel said on Tuesday.

Will the Cowboys coaching staff be doing some shopping over these next two weeks?

"No," he said bluntly. "We don't have a lot of (open scholarships) right now. We had a punter in on a visit this past weekend. It's a very good possibility that that's a direction we go. That's about as much as what I can say right now about it."

That kicker is Jack Culbreath from the Virginia Military Institute, who was seen on the sidelines inside War Memorial Stadium during last Saturday's open scrimmage.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Charlottesville, Va., product is a two-time All-American and three times claimed First Team All-SoCon honors. The graduate transfer was named the FCS National Special Teams Player of the Week in late September after placing 5-of-9 punts inside the 20-yard line, including a long of 60 in a 17-14 victory over Wofford.

Freshman Keelan Anderson from Cheyenne, along with Erik Sandvik, a redshirt freshman from Steamboat Springs, Colo., have been receiving all the punting reps in spring camp.

Wyoming has now lost eight players to the transfer portal since the end of the 2023 campaign. Three of those -- cornerback Kolbey Taylor (Vanderbilt) and linebackers Brady Hultman (Missouri) and Cayden Hawkins (Louisiana Tech) -- have all found landing spots. Running back DQ James and wide receiver Chase Locke have not.

None of these five were starters at season's end and Hultman and Locke never played a down at Wyoming.

May, a former four-star recruit who began his collegiate career at the University of Iowa, was ruled ineligible during his lone season in Laramie after transferring in from Coffeyville Community College (Kan.). The sophomore was named the Oklahoma Class 2A Player of the Year at Jones High School.

Jacklich was a three-star prospect in the 2023 recruiting class. He was the third-leading rusher in California during his senior season, rolling up 2,278 yards on the ground to go along with 32 touchdowns. The 6-foot-3, 213-pound Modesto native was named the NorCal Offensive Player of the Year.

Neither saw the field in Laramie. May has three years of eligibility remaining. Jacklich, four.

Dixon, a 5-foot-11, 182-pound defensive back out of Texas, appeared in just three games last fall, recording one tackle in the Cowboys' 31-10 loss at third-ranked Texas. The former three-star recruit received interest from Mountain West foes Air Force, New Mexico and Utah State out of McKinney High School. He has three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Wyoming's annual spring game will take place Saturday, April 27 at East High School in Cheyenne. Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m. Mountain Time.

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.
