LARAMIE -- Wyoming's quarterback room is down an arm.

Carson May, a former four-star prospect who spent his first collegiate season at the University of Iowa, announced Monday he will enter the NCAA Transfer Portal. The Jones, Okla., native was ineligible during his lone season in Laramie after transferring from Coffeyville Community College (Kan.).

Evan Svoboda, the team's presumed starter in 2024, ran the first team, followed by senior Jayden Clemons and redshirt freshman Kaden Anderson. Former walk-on Gage Brook is still on the roster and three-star recruit Deyon Batiste will join the program this summer.

Jay Sawvel last week was asked about the quarterback room and who could slide into the No. 2 spot behind Svoboda.

"I probably say Jayden Clemons is probably in that spot," Wyoming's rookie head coach said. "I think Kaden Anderson is doing good things. He's really intelligent, and, you know, I saw some good things out of him today. I think there's progress there. I saw Jayden Clemons throw some really good balls today. So, it's going to be a close thing, but if we went into a game and played a game, like in two or three days, I'd probably say Jayden would be the one right now."

Named the Oklahoma Class 2A Player of the Year in 2021, May accounted for 9,915 yards of total offense -- 8,549 passing, 1,366 rushing -- and 119 touchdowns during his four-year career at Jones High School. ranked him the 13th-best pro-style quarterback prospect in the country. May, who led his team to an overall record of 38-11, was also selected to the Newsok Super 30 team as a senior.

Old Dominion, Western Michigan and Iowa offered May. Power-5 programs like Colorado, Iowa State, TCU and Oklahoma State kicked the tires on the 6-foot-4, 215-pound signal caller.

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.
