When Austin Joyner (Marysville, Wash./Marysville-Pilchuck) recently received a scholarship offer from Washington, he admitted he was a bit surprised.

Only a sophomore, the 5-foot-10, 180-pound athlete didn’t expect to start receiving college interest quite so early in his career. But, more surprising than the offer was the school that extended it.

Joyner was just starting to hear from the Huskies. If a school was going to offer him early, he thought it would be Washington State. He caught the Cougars’ attention during a camp this summer and have been after him ever since.
