a 6-foot-8, 175-pound 2014 power forward from Oakland Park (Fla.) Northeast, pledged to USC Sunday night.
“The West Coast fits his style of play,” Team Breakdown coach Kenny Gillon
told SNY.tv. “Andy Enfield
recruited him hard and was at most of his games in July. He was comfortable with assistant coach Kevin Norris
Martin also held offers from Florida, Louisville, Miami, Memphis, Florida State, Auburn, South Carolina, Rutgers and South Florida, among others.
“He is a face-up forward who attacks the basket from the perimeter,”
previously told SNY.tv. “He has a smooth stroke out to the 3-point line. He’s an aggressive rebounder and shot-blocker.
“He has great size and length (7-foot-5 wingspan) and crazy athletic ability. He is a quick leaper and soars so as he gets stronger the sky is the limit for him.”
JOSEPH CUTS TO 3
, a 6-2 point guard from Cushing (Mass.) Academy, cut his list to Providence, Syracuse and West Virginia, according to Adam Finkelstein of ESPN.com.
“PC has minutes for me from Day 1,” he told SNY.tv. “With Bryce Cotton
leaving I have a chance to step in right away.
“Cuse specializes in guards. They produce pros on the biggest stage of college ball.
“West Virginia, I trust [coach Bob] Huggins.
The respect level his players have for him is second to none. And he’s going to get after me.”
Joseph is the No. 56 prospect in the Class of 2014, according to Yahoo.com. He said he has no visits planned and no timetable on a decision.
