Two factors converged to lead Darreall "Dee" Joyner to a scholarship offer and commitment to West…
Mike's Take: West Virginia WR commit
What to Like: Darreal Joyner, who goes by Dee, had a very productive junior season in the state of Georgia. He was a second team All-State pick. Speed is the name of the game in South Florida and that's something Joyner certainly brings to the table. He has the speed to create big plays down the field and has the quickness to make big things happen in the open field. He can make you miss and take off for a big gainer when given the opportunities. South Florida is known for producing athletic wide receiver prospects and Joyner fits the mold of another one. He had a good spring at Miami Central and has been impressive on the 7on7 tour this summer. What may concern you: At 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, he lacks ideal size. He's probably more of a slot receiver, which will be fine in West Virginia's offense. While he has the speed to stretch the field, you rarely see him going over the middle and into coverage. The more bodies around him the less effective he'll be. After playing at Miami Springs as a sophomore and in Georgia as a junior, it's still unclear how good of a receiver he can be in Dade County. Will he be just another guy on a team always loaded with quality prospects? Time will tell. Bottom Line: West Virginia always comes down to Florida to recruit speed at the skill positions and Joyner is another case of that. He brings speed and excitement to the Mountaineer program. Recruited like a solid three-star prospect, Joyner comes from one of the state's premier programs for producing Division 1 players. West Virginia is getting another quality prospect in Joyner.
