Now entering his second year as head coach at the University of Wyoming, Joe Glenn announced his 2004 signing class today highlighted by a junior-college All-America running back and three Colorado high-school student-athletes that were named to All-Colorado Teams their senior season.

Joe Harris earned junior-college All-America honors at Butler County Community College in El Dorado, Kan. He also helped lead Butler County to the 2003 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Championship. Among the top high-school signees in this year's class were: Mike Juergens of Pomona High School in Denver, Colo., who was named the Colorado Defensive Player of the Year by the Rocky Mountain News; John Fletcher of Ralston Valley High School in Erie, Colo., and Michael Medina of Bear Creek High in Lakewood, Colo., who both joined Juergens on the All-Colorado Team for all classifications.

Glenn and his coaching staff had the luxury of a full recruiting year this time around as they signed their second class of recruits on Wednesday. Glenn's first recruiting class at UW was put together in a little less than two months, as he was hired on Dec. 12, 2002, prior to national signing day of Feb. 5, 2003.

"I'm elated with the effort of everybody involved," said Glenn. "The coaching staff -- tremendous competitors, dogged recruiters -- our current players and the support staff all went the extra mile to help us recruit these young men. It showed me how much our team wants to win the way they put their best foot forward to host these young men when they came in to visit. Then our support group, our equipment managers, trainers and administration that helped us make the on-campus visits the best they could be for our recruits. And I want to thank our faculty on campus that stepped up to meet with recruits about their academic programs. Just right down the line, it gives us such a sense of commitment from everybody involved in the recruiting process at Wyoming."

Glenn said that this year's recruiting class was one that should help the Cowboys across the board at a number of different positions. He added that it was a year when he and his staff focused on getting the best available athletes, not merely focusing on certain positions.

"I think we really needed to recruit the best guy we could get at nearly every position on our team," said Glenn. "If you analyze this class, we are ecstatic about the kids we ultimately got. I think our coaches did such a good job at evaluating a lot of players throughout the year. We couldn't be happier with the quality of young men we got, and with the talent they will add to our team.

"I think this class really came together about as good as any I've been involved with, we were battling against a lot of very good football schools to get these young men, and we feel like we got our fair share of outstanding athletes. In addition, this is one of the strongest groups academically that our staff has recruited in my time as a college coach."

There were 23 signings in this year's Wyoming recruiting class -- four junior-college signees, 17 high-school student-athletes and two current Cowboys who were awarded scholarships.

The Cowboys have two scholarships that they can still award. The national letter-of-intent signing period began today, Feb. 4 and ends April 1, 2004.
