40 time: 4.58
From: Huntington Beach, California
Junior College: Golden West
The summer following his senior year, he broke his ankle before attending Golden West and gray-shirted so he did not start at the school until this past spring. Joey Halzle hopes to qualify in December and will show up at his college of choice in the spring with four years to play three. He was a full-qualifier out of high school so his intentions of graduating in December should hold true. At Oaks Christian, he was a first team all-league and CIF selection as a senior. He was arguably the top quarterback at the 2005 JCFootball.com SoCal Combine when he recorded a 4.58 forty, 4.3 shuttle, 28.7 vertical, and 21 reps on the bench at 185.
He breaks down his strongest attributes. "I have the ability to read defenses and I have a strong arm. I can also move the ball on the ground if I have to."
The signal caller is interested in all suitors with regards to recruitment. "I do not have any preferences," says Halzle. "I am seriously wide open right now. I guess you could say I like Wyoming, Colorado and Cal, but really, I am completely open."
Halzle has been in contact with CU. "Coach Cabral came to see me in the spring and he also told me recently that they'll be watching me this fall."
He has not yet received any offers or scheduled any official visits. The three mentioned above are some of the bigger schools that have shown the most interest, along with North Carolina State, Texas, UCLA, Baylor, Rutgers, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Cincinatti.
Halzle would like to major in Business.
