Wyoming’s 2011 football recruitment class was lead by the top recruitment prospect in Cowboy football history, Adam Pittser. Pittser officially signed with the Pokes on College Football National Signing Day which was February 2. The Richmond, Ill product is ranked as the 19th
dual-threat quarterback in the country by Rivals.com and the 25th overall quarterback in the nation by Scout.com. He is also the first recruit in Wyoming history to be recognized as a National Underclassmen Combine All-American. Pittser was runner up for the ESPN Elite 11 QB camp MVP in the summer of 2010.
As part of ESPN RISE, a site that follows up and coming high-school athletes, Pittser has been a featured player keeping a recruit diary. Here is an excerpt as to why he chose to play his college football at Wyoming:
After visiting Wyoming (on the weekend of Dec. 4), I’ve decided to commit there to play football next year. When I came back home from my visit, I wasn’t sure when I was going to commit to a school, but I had a good feeling about Wyoming. Then, when head coach Dave Christensen, offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo and Jim Harding, my recruiting coach, came to visit my house a few times, that sealed it for me and I called them with my decision (on Dec. 10).
I’m really excited about going to Wyoming. I love the coaches, love the offense they run and it’s a program on the rise in a great conference like the Mountain West. At this point, I’m done making visits and feel confident in my decision going into National Signing Day in February. I had planned on taking an official visit to Western Michigan (on the weekend of Dec. 11), but I didn’t end up going after making my commitment with Wyoming.
