Joyner to Visit
First Jeff Luc, and now LaMarcus Joyner.
The five star linebacker was the first to pencil in his visit to Knoxville for the first weekend in October, when the Volunteers play host to the Auburn Tigers. Well, Luc is now being joined by fellow five star LaMarcus Joyner, who has decided to make a visit that weekend too, according to Brent Hubbs over at Volquest.com.
Joyner is the most sought after defensive back in the country, as he’s yet to commit his services to anyone, although Ohio State and Florida State seem to lead the pack of schools coveting the talented athlete. With over twenty offers from some of the top programs in the country, Joyner has plenty to think about before making his decision on where to play college ball.
Tennessee stands to gain plenty of ground on many of these programs when they bring Joyner onto campus that first weekend in October. When asked about Tennessee and his upcoming visit, Joyner responded, “With this new staff and the recruits they are bringing in, I think they are going to bring Tennessee back to a power house. They are going to get things rolling and I am looking forward to my visit.”
Something that might help the Vols in their quest to sign Joyner is the fact that he’s teammates with Tennessee’s newest commitment, No. 1 kicking prospect Michael Palardy. No doubt, Eddie Gran and the rest of the coaching staff, along with Palardy, will be doing all they can to make sure this five star defensive back ends up a Volunteer.
