LARAMIE – Craig Bohl wanted another arm for fall camp.
Wyoming’s head coach is getting a quarterback talented enough to create competition for incumbent starter Andrew Peasley.
Carson May, a former four-star prospect who started his career at Iowa, committed to the Cowboys on Thursday.
The 6-foot-5, 220-pound May entered the transfer portal on Jan. 3 and spent the spring semester at Coffeyville (Kansas) Community College. He has four years of eligibility remaining.
May originally signed with the Hawkeyes to play in the Big Ten shortly after current UW offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tim Polasek left his position as Iowa’s offensive line coach to join Bohl’s staff.
After a prolific high school career in Oklahoma, May also was offered by Western Michigan and Old Dominion. He passed for 8,549 yards and 107 touchdowns during his career at Jones High School.
