Colorado Wants LB in a Different Capacity

Colorado is holding a high standard for the linebackers they recruit this year. So high that the state Defensive Player of the Year cannot obtain a scholarship offer from the CU staff due to limited scholarships left and the fact that CU has already taken three LB's. However, CU has told Tyler they do still want him and he could be on scholarship down the road if he comes to Boulder. He fills us in on if this would be something he will consider.

"I did not visit there this weekend because they called me last week and told me they wanted me to be a preferred walk-on," said Tyler Joyce. "I don't think I will do that. I am going to wait to see if Kansas State plans on doing anything, and if not then I am probably going to Montana."

Tyler has already visited Montana and has a visit scheduled with Northern Colorado next weekend. Idaho has also started calling him.

Joyce finished the year with 105 tackles, seven sacks, three interceptions, and two touchdowns on offense from the tight end position.

He was named to the All-Colorado team and was also a first team all-state selection by the Denver Post and the Rocky Mountain News. He was a first team all-Centennial selection at linebacker and tight end. The Centennial conference is viewed as the most competitive conference in the state.
