Hunter Joyer, A Prototype Fullback

There may be few fullbacks rated higher than rising senior, Hunter Joyer of Tampa (FL) Catholic High School. At 5-11, 250, he is the prototype to his position and was in Atlanta recently for Georgia Tech's skill camp.

The trip to Georgia Tech was a good one in Hunter Joyer's eyes. "I really had a good time; the facilities were very nice and I enjoyed meeting the coaching staff, especially Coach (Charles) Kelly."

Joyer didn't leave camp with an offer but feels he did well. "They told me I did well and they would be in touch." Joyer enjoyed the experience and given his offers so where would Georgia Tech stand? "They would definitely be very high on my list and I could see myself playing there." Joyer is familiar with some of the Tech players who played for his high school rival Tampa Jesuit.

Joyer currently has six offers. "Minnesota and Texas A&M are the latest and there's also Louisville, Stanford, Connecticut, and South Florida."

When choosing a school, Joyer puts academics at the top. "I hope to be able to use my education to get a good job and make connections when I'm done with football." Joyer currently has a 3.3 GPA. He hopes to make that decision before his senior year.

Joyer will keep busy this summer attending camps and visiting schools. "I'm going to camps at Miami (FL) and will try to fit in visits to Stanford and Texas A&M."
