It hasn’t taken new Wyoming Head Football Coach Dave Christensen to build a recruiting pipeline into an Oklahoma High School that is very well known for producing Division 1 talent.

The Cowboys picked up two commitments from Tulsa’s Booker T. Washington High School for its first class and already has an early pledge from Washington defensive end Ray Stovall for the Class of 2010.

CowboyBlitz.com caught up with Stovall this week to get his thoughts and reasons for making an early decision.

“I have heard nothing but great things about the Wyoming Football program,” Stovall said Friday morning. “Terry (Smith) and Shamiel (Gary) loved it up there. They talk about the indoor facility and how nice everyone is up there.”

Stovall, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound athlete that plays defensive end and outside linebacker for his high school team, stated that the Cowboys is recruiting him for the defensive end position.

Stovall was very pleased to receive the early offer.

“I was very excited when they offered,” Stovall said. “It’s good to know somebody wants me to play at their school.”

Did it take Stovall long before making a decision after receiving the official offer?

“Not really,” Stovall said. “I spoke to my coaches and they told me that I should take the offer. I have a lot of respect for my coaches and felt like this was the right decision for me. I’m excited about being a Cowboy from Wyoming.”

Another deciding factor was the relationships he already has with the two future Cowboys, Gary and Smith.

“We are great friends,” Stovall said. “It will be great to already have some friends there when I get there.”

Stay tuned to Cowboy Blitz as we will be keeping up with Stovall throughout his senior season.
