Joyer, who has been cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse, ran into some admission problems at USF over four ‘online' courses that he took to meet NCAA core course requirements. When things didn't work out for Joyer in Tampa, the 6-foot-3, 295-pound center asked for and received a release from his scholarship late last month.
That's when Joyer got in contact with Louisville. Wednesday morning, Joyer boarded a plane to visit with the Cardinals. Joyer will spend a couple days checking out UofL and told InsideTheVille.com minutes before leaving Florida that he intends to sign with the Cards today.
"They just had a center (Eric Wood) drafted in the first round and I think their coaching staff can teach me everything I need to know," Joyer said. "They have a great campus and school and I plan on signing with Louisville today."
While he ran into some admission issues at USF, Joyer said the Louisville coaches told him that his "academics should be fine."
If something falls through unexpectedly at Louisville, Joyer does have a back-up plan – Rutgers. Joyer has a tentative visit scheduled with the Scarlet Knights this Friday but won't make that visit if things go as planned at Louisville.
"I'm pretty sure that Louisville's the place but I have got Rutgers on the list just in case," Joyer said.
