SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #56 is Utah State’s Patrick Joyner Jr. (DE).

Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).

“Pat Joyner, defensive end for us from Miami,” Utah State head coach Blake Anderson said of his defensive end. “Played a ton last year, got better and better as the season went along and has become that point of attack, explosive play, defensive end presence. He has the ability to rush when you got Byron (Vaughns) on one side and him on the other. I feel like we have two of the best defensive ends in the league.”

Utah State’s Patrick Joyner Jr.

Joyner is a junior from Homestead, Florida.

He spent three seasons at the University of Miami from 2018-20, where he played in nine games. In his first season with Utah State in 2021, Joyner played in all 14 games with eight starts. He finished the 2021 campaign with 29 tackles, 3,5 sacks, 7.5 tackles for loss, one pass breakup and a safety.

In the Mountain West Conference Championship game, Joyner had two tackles, including 0.5 tackles for loss.

Coming out of South Dade High School, he was a three-star prospect and was selected to the 2017 Miami Herald All-Dade first team.

Joyner and the Aggies open their 2022 schedule at home against the UConn Huskies on Saturday, August 27. A week after hosting the Huskies, Utah State will travel to Alabama to play the Crimson Tide of the SEC. Alabama and Utah State will play on September 3.
