Joynes To The Big East

Byron Joynes is off the board. The big fella from Oak Hill Academy signed his national of intent this week.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights just got a little bigger inside. Byron Joynes, a center from Oak Hill Academy, signed with Rutgers this week.

Joynes visited Michigan early during the spring period and was never offered early by the Wolverines. However, that marriage never went full term and Joynes remained open throughout the season.

He had just an average season for the Warriors but his size cannot be denied. He played well in spurts for Coach Steve Smith when we watched them this season which leads you to wonder what he could do if he ever committed himself to conditioning.

Joynes has offensive talent. The question for Rutgers now becomes: how much can we get out of him early?
