UNM football: Punter commits

Tyson Dyer, a punter from Palomar College in San Marcos, Calif., has committed to attend the University of New Mexico.

Dyer, a native of Australia, made the announcement on his Twitter feed. He averaged 39.9 yards per attempt this season. He spent only one year at Palomar and will be a sophomore in the fall.

 The Lobos lose senior punter Corey Bojorquez, a first-team All-Mountain West selection this fall. Bojorquez has exhausted his eligibility.

UNM now has six known commitments toward its 2018 signing class. 

In addition to Dyer, they are:

Chris Elam, an offensive lineman from Kingwood (Texas) High School.

Jarred Sylvester, an offensive lineman from Dodge City (Kansas) Community College.

A.J. Greeley, a defensive back from College of the Sequoias in Visalia, Calif.

Sheriron Jones, a dual-threat quarterback from Mt. San Jacinto College in California.

David Zavala, an offensive lineman from Cerritos College in Norwalk, Calif.

Signing day for mid-year junior college transfers is Wednesday. This year for the first time, high school players also can sign letters of intent  during a four-day period beginning Wednesday.
