While Hooey will get the chance to enjoy catching the football for another season in high school, he projects into a major offensive tackle talent at the next level and the Bearcats are showing interest with an invite to their "Super Junior Day" to be held on Sunday. Hooey's father Tim gave BCI the latest news.

"I had a chance to speak with Coach Forest and Coach Elston and we've been invited to visit Sunday during Cincinnati's Junior Day. We're very excited to learn more about the University of Cincinnati and Coach Kelly and his staff."

Hooey has seen his interest rise over the past few weeks as his highlight tape has started hitting the desk of college football coaches. With great upside, Hooey is the type of player offensive lineman, coach Jeff Quinn loves to work with.
