Stirneman talks Wyoming decision
Woodstock (Ill.) Marian Central Catholic senior offensive tackle prospect Kurtis Stirneman 6-foot-6, 280 pounds) decommitted from Western Michigan and pledged to the Wyoming Cowboys after making a weekend official visit to Wyoming. Stirneman talks about his change of heart here in this recruiting update.
"I decommitted to Western Michigan and gave Wyoming my verbal commitment," Stirneman said. "I made an official visit to Wyoming this past weekend and loved it there. I really overlooked Wyoming and once I saw it in person and got to know the coaches and the players I was sold."
Stirneman discussed his decision to decommit and then commit to the Cowboys.
"I have every intention to stick with my verbal commitmenr to Western Michigan but when they fired the coaches it really made me look again at everything. Wyoming was always near the top of the list for me but I honestly overlooked them looking back now. The coaches at Wyoming welcomed me on my official visit and I just felt very comfortable and at home there. I was able to get to know some of the coaches and the players and the other recruits. Wyoming plays top notch teams and they get great fan support. I just feel blessed about how this has all worked out for me."
Stirneman admits that the distance from home was an early issue with Wyoming but is not an issue.
"It's a really long drive from home no question but once I made the trip I realized that I'm looking for a place like Wyoming. It's just a perfect fit for me and I couldn't be happier with my decision."
Stirneman reflected back on a wild few weeks.
"I was really down last week when I found out about the situation at Western Michigan. I feel great now and happy and excited. I have my confidence back and I'm really happy to have found a new home."
Kurtis Stirneman is verbally committed to Wyoming.
