Mormon Cricket Anabrus simplex probably a male as no ovipositor is visible.

It is probably just a very dark mormon cricket...but check out this species to be sure: Utabaenetes tanneri.

That would be Udeopsylla robusta. It can definitely look like U. tanneri, but that species is restricted to a couple dune systems in Utah and Arizona, while U. robusta occurs throughout the Great Plains.
