With four visits under his belt, elite point guard prospect Cory Joseph has set a fifth official visit date and will sign in the spring.
The weekend of December 12, Joseph, 6-foot-3, 180-pounds from Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep will visit local school UNLV.
Florida and Mississippi State are now officially out of the race, and Joseph is down to Connecticut, Minnesota, Texas and Villanova along with UNLV.
Joseph, the No. 7 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, will not commit to a school before his UNLV visit, but a commitment could come shortly after the visit.
"If I feel 100 percent sure, then I might commit early and just sign in the spring," said Joseph.
As things stand now, however, Joseph is struggling to identify a leader in his recruitment.
"I go to a school, and things are so great and the coaches are cool," he said. "And then the next school is great too. They all sort of tell you what you want to hear. It is really a tough situation."
Cory Joseph scouting report:
Joseph is a unique point guard prospect because of the complete nature of his game. A sound decision maker with a strong will to win, Joseph also has a surprising athletic burst to go along with his high skill level. With his high level feel for the game, he transitions well from being a distributor to being a scorer. He shoots the ball much better than most point guards and is an elite defender.
