With spring practices across the country ending, so too are the careers of some players at those particular schools as transfer season is once again in full swing.
One of the latest to suffer a bit of a personnel hit is Wyoming, which announced Tuesday that Nico Brown — not to be confused with New Jack City‘s Nino Brown — has decided to leave the Cowboys football program. The ubiquitous “personal reasons” was given for the departure.
The 6-3, 212-pound Brown was listed No. 3 on a mid-April depth chart released by new head coach Craig Bohl, which could be a significant part of the “personal reasons” given by the school.
After redshirting as a two-star true freshman in 2012, Brown played in eight games in 2013. He did not catch any passes last season, although he appeared in line for additional playing time in 2014 before his abrupt decision to leave.
Brown becomes the fourth Cowboy to leave the program the past month, joining a pair of offensive tackles — senior Walker Madden and redshirt freshman Connor Riese — and junior linebacker Devin McKenna. The departures of Madden and McKenna were announced earlier this month.
