Cowboys Finish Recruiting Class With Hayden Dalton
The Wyoming Cowboys 2015 basketball recruiting class is complete. Thursday, head coach Larry Shyatt announced the signing of Hayden Dalton.
He's a 6-10, 190 forward from Parker, CO, who spent last season at Central Wyoming College in Riverton. In his lone season with the Rustlers, Dalton started all 27 games and averaged 8.8 points and a team-leading 6.2 rebounds per game.
In a university release, Shyatt said, "As we’ve mentioned in the past few weeks, we’ve continued to look for the best fit for our program. There is no question that we have found that right fit in Hayden Dalton. He is continuing to develop and grow... He has all the attributes in terms of family values and academics that we look for when we recruit a young man to our program."
In high school, Dalton played at Chaparral High in Parker, CO, which is the same as current UW senior Josh Adams. During Dalton's senior season, he averaged 11.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game. He was named First Team All-Continental League.
Dalton will have three years of eligibility remaining.
