"I just got back from Arkansas," Hoey said. "It was really a good trip. It was an unofficial visit."
"The faculties were the best I have ever seen in my life. They were amazing. Everything was new and there is a lot of everything. Anything you want to get done you can do. Anything you can possibly think of. It was a surprise to me."
Hoey has been to a bunch of schools already and Arkansas compares very favorably to all of them. "I went to Wisconsin, Iowa State, Nebraska, Northwestern, Michigan State and Minnesota. I think that Arkansas is definitely in the running."
Hoey is up to double-digit offers now with an offer from Nebraska. However he is now looking at narrowing the list down a little bit in the upcoming weeks and will also begin deciding on where he will take his official visits.
"I am up to 10 offers. Let's see they are from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa State, Colorado, Wyoming, Indiana, Central Florida, Nebraska, Arkansas and one other. I have thought about leaders a little bit, but really soon I will be thinking about leaders and official visits."
When it comes to characteristics in a school that Hoey is looking at he believes that all of the schools will provide him a good education. He is looking more at the relationship that he would share between he and the coaching staff.
"All of the schools have great academics. All of the schools that I have offers from would be good schools to attend. I am looking at coaches because I will be there for four or five years. Distance isn't that big of a thing for me."
Hoey was at Junior Day in Nebraska earlier this spring and came away impressed by one of their records. "I went to Junior Day at Nebraska. Their Academic All-Americans shocked me. By far and away they have the most. Lincoln isn't a huge town, but it isn't a small town. I haven't seen a game there before. I am thinking about taking an official there this fall."
