There’s a new Rocket Ismail coming to college football. Raghib “Rocket” Ismail Jr., son of the man we all know as Rocket Ismail, has signed with the Wyoming Cowboys ahead of the 2018 college football season.

Not surprisingly, junior will also be known as The Rocket, just like his dad.
“Rocket (Ismail) is a young man who brings great speed and athleticism to the wide receiver position,” Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl said in a statement. “He does a lot after the catch with the ball in his hands. He catches the ball extremely well, catches it away from his body, and will bring great value to the wide receiver room.”
Originally, Ismail signed with TCU but later transferred to Cisco Junior College in Texas. He caught 48 passes for 434 yards and four touchdowns last season, and the 48 catches was good for 21st in the nation for junior college receivers.
