Joyer signs with Louisville

New, comments

This definitely appears to be a "to be continued" situation, but if everything works out Joyer could be a terrific get for the program.

Wesley Chapel offensive lineman Kamran Joyer, who originally signed with the University of South Florida but was denied admission by the academic committee after an "unusual number of grade changes," signed with the University of Louisville, UL assistant athletic director Rocco Gasparro said today.

Gasparro, however, could not comment on whether Joyer has been officially accepted into the university yet. Joyer may sign a grant-in-aid with Louisville, but still must be cleared by the university before he can play for the Cardinals.

Joyer signed with USF in February but was denied admission to USF in June because of concerns regarding his transcript. USF officials said Joyer could take a couple of summer school courses at Hillsborough Community College and try again to gain admission in August, but Joyer didn't want to take a chance he wouldn't be accepted into USF, his father Jack Joyer said.

Joyer is a three-star guard who considered Tennessee and Florida, among others, before signing with USF in February. He was rated as the 49th best prospect in the country at his position by Scout.com.

ESPN describes Joyer as a polished guard who "uses proper techniques and is athletic enough to not lose balance or body control when on the move. Finds someone to block in the openfield. A very solid pass protector that has the quick feet to mirror the opponent and at the same time the ability to recover if gets out of position."

Risk, risk, risk: Reward, reward, reward. Boy Meets World taught me that.
