Class 2017 recruit to play south of the border (VIDEO)

This fall will mark a new gridrion and academic chapter for Joshua Palmer.

The 6’2, 170 pound receiver from Brampton, Ontario announced this past week that he will move to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he will play for St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders. The team has won two national championships.

Palmer will be playing for a program that has a known reputation for grooming future players that have enjoyed success in the NFL.  One of his coaches will be former NFL great Cris Carter,  who enjoyed success with both the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings. Carter has been inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame as well.

While he does not enter college/university football until 2017, Palmer is already gaining attention.  In May, the Ontario receiver was offered by University of Michigan Wolverines.

Palmer’s first offer came from University of Temple Owls. Other schools that have expressed an interest in the offensive standout include Iowa and Notre Dame.

This past spring, Palmer participated in the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC), guiding the Team Halton-Peel to a 15-14 victory over Team West in the Varsity Game.  In recent weeks, Palmer has attended several camps south of the border including the Sound Mind, Sound Body Camp and Notre Dame’s Irish Invasion camp.

The receiver has previously suited up for both the St. Roch Ravens of the Region of Peel Secondary School Athletic Association (ROPSSAA) and Burlington Stampeders of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC).

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
