Which Wyoming football players are transferring?
LARAMIE -- The offseason is a time for change for college football rosters nationwide.
That includes defections by way of transfers, which have already started in earnest for Wyoming. Five former Wyoming players have already announced their intent to transfer.
Here’s a running list of the players who are transferring out of the program. It will be updated should any more transfers happen in the future.
RB Theo Dawson
Dawson, a Jackson native, spent just one season at Wyoming after serving a two-year LDS mission. The former Jackson High running back was the state’s Gatorade Player of the Year in 2015.
LB Chase Hughes
Hughes, a New Hampshire native, spent one season with the Cowboys as a walk-on linebacker after serving a two-year LDS mission.
CB Sidney Washington Jr.
Washington, a third-year sophomore, played in nine games for the Cowboys the past two seasons, appearing in seven this past season as a reserve cornerback. The walk-on finished his time in Laramie with three career tackles.
WR Jared Scott
Scott, a sophomore, played in 19 games the last two seasons, including 11 this season, but finished his time in Laramie with just three receptions for 57 yards. The 6-foot-6, 215-pounder had one catch for 17 yards this season.
WR Camron Donalton
A redshirt this season, Donalton never saw the field for the Cowboys. Donalton, a three-sport standout during his prep days at West Aurora High in Colorado, originally planned to do football and track but never did anything with Wyoming’s track team.

Since it’s getting closer to the end of the semester after much thought and prayer with my family this is my decision after the 2018 season. Thanks to everyone who’s helped and supported me along the way! 🙏🏼💯 #GoPokespic.twitter.com/SWWB3VRrU7 — Isaac Leppke 9️⃣ (@Lepp_09) November 18, 2018
WR Avante’ Cox
Cox played in 10 games over the last two seasons with six catches for 84 yards. He had a rushing touchdown against Washington State on Sept. 2 before leaving the team for what head coach Craig Bohl called personal reasons. Cox later announced his commitment to Southern Illinois.
ATH Trey Woods
A member of Wyoming’s 2017 recruiting class, Woods signed with the Cowboys as an athlete. He spent his first fall camp at linebacker before being moved to running back and eventually defensive end this season. Woods, the team’s leading a rusher a season ago, played in one game this season.
Thank you to my brothers at UW for giving me a chance and giving me hope. Y’all always been with me and I’ll always be with y’all. Thank you to the fans and everyone that believed in a kid… https://t.co/tHbRQQC4ON — Triggy (@takwwoods) October 11, 2018
