Sheridan RB Christensen 1st 2019 Cowboys Commit

Parker Christensen can focus on his senior year at Sheridan High School.

He won't be distracted by colleges recruiting him to play football.

Christensen announced on twitter this weekend that he has committed to his home state university, the University of Wyoming. 

Christensen is the first known verbal commit for the Cowboys' Class of 2018. He is known to have had offers from Montana and Montana State.

Christensen, who is listed at 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, was a first-team All-Star running back, according to USA Today. Christensen rushed for 1,049 yards and 13 touchdowns on 98 carries in helping Sheridan to the Wyoming Class AA state title last fall. He also caught 34 passes for 383 yards and 10 touchdowns.
