Cowboys sign Pine Bluffs 6-10 all-stater

Apr 13, 2017 The Associated Press

LARAMIE (AP) -- Wyoming basketball recruit Hunter Thompson says he's been offered a scholarship when he joins the Cowboys next season.

The 6-foot-10, 235-pound forward from Pine Bluffs signed with Wyoming in November with the understanding that he wouldn't go on scholarship until the fall of 2018.

But the recent departure of junior point guard Jeremy Lieberman freed up a scholarship.

Thompson says Wyoming coach Allen Edwards called him with news that he could have the scholarship a year earlier.

Thompson originally verbally committed to play at Creighton but he backed out of that last July.

At Pine Bluffs, Thompson averaged 19 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks a game during his high school career.
