"I love to throw the football and I would love to go to a school that throws the ball 25 times a game."
His 4.6-second speed in the 40-yard dash gives him a lot of mobility and he has a very strong arm. College recruiters see him as a player with great potential and that is why the big boys are calling.
As the recruiting season begins to get hot and heavy, expect Joe to receive more offers by the end of the summer.
