Lots of attention for Juste

Port St. Lucie (Fla.) athlete D.J. Juste holds two early offers.
"Florida Atlantic and Georgia State are my only offers," Juste said.
While he has just two offers, numerous programs - including some of the top programs in the nation - are expressing an interest in the 6-foot-1, 175-pound athlete.
"I have gotten interest from Marshall, UCF, USF, Penn State, Alabama, West Virginia, and Oregon," Juste said. "FIU wants me to do their next camp. They are going to work me at quarterback to start and then move me to wide receiver."
As a junior, Juste played primarily quarterback for Port St. Lucie. He was 52-for-123 passing for 1,002 yards and nine touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,163 yards and 12 touchdowns on 177 carries. This summer, while playing for a local 7-on-7 squad, he is working primarily at wide receiver. The versatility and ability to play two different positions is one thing that numerous colleges continue to evaluate.
"Some are looking at me at quarterback and some at wide receiver," Juste said. "It is both positions. Some schools want to see me work at both positions and then make a decision. Whichever one they feel I fit them the best at, then that is what they are recruiting me at. It doesn't matter to me."
At this point in the process, Juste hasn't hit the road for any junior day visits.
"I was supposed to take a junior day visit to USF earlier this month, but I wasn't able to go," Juste said. "I was also invited to one in March but I can't go because we were invited to a national 7-on-7 event."
Juste, who claims no leaders at this time, is focusing on trying to put himself in position to be a December graduate and an early enrollee.
"I am just focused right now on finishing school early, because I am going to leave school early and enroll in January," Juste said. "I have just one more class to handle and I should be able to do that."
