Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site.
One of the first players in the Class of 2014 to receive a Maryland scholarship offer, Kaleb Joseph has had plenty of time to become acquainted with his lead recruiter, assistant coach Scott Spinelli, who was back at Cushing Academy (Mass.) recently to check in on the sought-after junior.
“He was just telling me about how they’re trying to get the Harrison twins in 2013, and they might be one-and-done, so I could come in the next year and fill that spot,” Joseph said. “He’s a cool guy. I know a few coaches here who have known him for a long time, and they all have good things to say about him, that he makes you better as a player. And that’s what it’s all about, getting better.”
Joseph, a 6-3 point guard, had a good summer playing for Mass Rivals, and in the process added several new offers. West Virginia was recently added to a list that includes Maryland, Kansas State, Tennessee, Boston College, Providence and Seton Hall. He hopes to take a few visits to watch some of these teams in action this season, but hasn’t planned any visits yet.
The No. 14 point guard in the Class of 2014 – and No. 2 player in Mass. – Joseph has no intentions of choosing a college soon, but has long maintained high interest in Maryland.
“Definitely. They’re definitely a great school,” he said. “I’ve spoken to Coach Turgeon a few times and I know it’s a program on the rise.”
