Cowboys Recruiting 2013 Prospect
The Wyoming football program has a radar on 2013 class prospect David Yancey of Lake Central High School in Indiana. Yancey will be entering his junior season at his high school while his versatility has the Cowboys recruiting him in advance.
"Wyoming would be my top choice right now. I haven't visited the school but I'm working with Coach (Jim) Harding on finding a time to come out to Wyoming and I've been sending him my highlight tapes," said Yancey. "They haven't offered but I think they are close to offering."
Yancey looks to fit the recruiting blueprint the Cowboy program likes with the combination of versatility and athleticism, where he can be evaluated at multiple positions. He has the ability to play quarterback, running back, and wide receiver, and stars as a strong safety in high school.
"They like my speed, my hard work, and my athleticism," said Yancey. "They are looking at me at several positions right now and as an athlete. I'm looking for a playing time first with a school, academics second, and an overall good feeling to the environment and campus along with a good coaching staff."
Right now Wyoming, Indiana, Ball State, Bulter, Central Michigan, and Western Michigan are showing the Saint John, Indiana prospect the most interest early in his recruiting cycle.
Yancey has made unofficial visits to Indiana, Ball State, and Butler. He says the Wyoming coaches stand out the most and looks forward to seeing the school in the near future.
"Coach Harding seems like a good guy and I like that they've been talking with me," said Yancey. "I watch Wyoming on TV since I have their television station at home. I've watched a lot of their games and familiar with Mountain West football."
The 5-foot-11 and 200 pound prospects feels he benefits from running track outside of playing football. He's also attended NUC overall camp where he received the MVP award and also the NUC midwest camp and was named the top running back.
"I look at track like football's brother," said Yancey. "It helps impove my forty time and one of my goals is to drop my dash time down as low as I can. I'm also working on building up my upper body strength."
The atlhlete has been clocked at a 4.5 forty-yard dash and 34 inch vertical jump. He has the 260 pound bench press max, an area he plans to continue to improve.
Yancey is mainly recruited by UW offensive line coach Jim Harding.
