The USF coaching staff has focused on finding top local talent, and this year the
With four USF starting offensive lineman graduating after next year, restocking the line is a huge priority for '09, and at 6-foot-3, 315 pounds Kamran could fit the bill nicely. Joyer is a massive athlete that has played guard, tackle, and center while in middle school, and possesses more strength and raw power then most in the state.
"I can pass block, and love to run block that's my strength, but pull blocking is my favorite thing, I love to get out there and get to it."
After his junior season, Joyer was named first team All-Conference and second team All-State for his junior performance adding between 60 and 70 pancake blocks for the season, and recently named to the St. Petersburg Times Nifty Nine.
"I've really improved on my explosiveness this year, and it felt great to be mentioned with those guys," said Joyer. "But I want to work on my technique for this season."
Joyer is versatile and strong, in the weight room he owns a 415-pound bench press, 295-pound power clean, squats 480 pounds, and after running a 5.32-40 yard dash, is garnering some major interest.

The Wesley Chapel stand out has already made unofficial visits to Tennessee, Florida, FSU, Notre Dame, and several to USF including a spring practice.
"I really enjoyed watching them practice," said Joyer. "Being close to home is one of the reasons I like USF. I also really like the coaching staff, and they have a good program."
Joyer has played football for three years, plus middle school, and also competes in track & field, and knows what he's looking for in a program.
"Education is important, a good school, and also somewhere I can get playing time soon," said Joyer. "I'm aware of depth charts because I want to play."
The All-state lineman plans on a busy camp schedule, "I'm going to go to the
When asked Joyer, said "I also prefer to stay in
"I'd like to make my decision some time in July after I go to the camps."
