Four-Star 2014 Recruit Kaleb Joseph Commits To Syracuse

Kaleb Joseph, rated four-stars by Scout, Rivals and ESPN, committed to play for the Syracuse Orange in 2014 during his official visit this weekend.

Another recruiting class, another top-flight point guard. I could really get used to this whole "being an elite basketball program that pulls in the nation's best recruits year in and year out" thing.

Kaleb Joseph, rated four-stars by ScoutRivals and ESPN, committed to play for the Syracuse Orange in 2014 during his official visit this weekend.

Why are we all calling him "THE Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim?" Like THE Ohio State University?

Joseph had offers from Boston College, Kansas St., Maryland, Pittsburgh, Seton Hall and more. His final three schools were SU, Providence and West Virginia. So what tipped the scales? Being Syracuse, apparently.

"It's something I've always wanted to do," Joseph said of playing for Syracuse. "In the back of my mind it's always where I wanted to be. I've always been a Syracuse fan. It just felt right."

So what are we getting from our new K. Joseph? He's a Top 60 player according to the major services and is considered one of the top point guards in the nation. Even with Tyler Ennis in the fold, Syracuse is wise to invest in more ball handlers, given the team's lack of depth and the possibility Ennis doesn't last too long in an orange uniform.

Joseph joins PF Chris McCullough in the Class of 2014. The Orange are also recruiting combo guard Isaiah Whitehead and hoping to make him and Joseph the SU backcourt of the future.

Good work, Coach Hop.
