Joshua Guerrier Talks Iowa Offer
'25 FL Athlete Lands Hawkeye Opportunity
Joshua Guerrier wants to learn more about Iowa after reporting a scholarship offer from it Monday night. The Class of 2025 Florida Athlete knows at least one important aspect of the Hawkeye program.
“I like Iowa because their secondary had the most picks last year in the Big Ten, and they would like to see me play DB (defensive back),” he told HF.
Guerrier (5-11, 170) lines up at receiver and safety for Ocoee (FL) High. The second play on his sophomore highlight film is him returning a kick 90 yards for a touchdown. His speed in the open field on both sides of the ball and special teams is impressive.
Iowa likes him in the secondary. Others programs see him on offense. He reports offers from Tennessee, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, Temple, Marshall, Iowa State, Cincinnati and the Hawkeyes only half way through his high school career. He’s keeping the attention in perspective.
“I’m just going to keep on working and trust in Jesus Christ. I gotta stay humble,” he said.
Iowa tight end coach and Florida native Abdul Hodge attended Ocoee’s Spring practice on Monday. He watched the Knights work out and offered Guerrier.
Guerrier intercepted five passes and defended seven others this past season, according to Max Preps. He added 3.0 sacks and 7.0 tackles for loss. He averaged 9.8 yards per catch and 10.5 yards per rush. He also blocked a punt.
He’s approaching the recruiting process deliberately, getting to know the programs. He has a Tennessee visit under his belt so far.
He wants to check out Iowa in person.
“I would like to know the graduation rate and the most famous major at Iowa. I’d also like to find out what Iowa can teach me as a man,” Guerrier said.
