Central Florida is the latest school to offer Class of 2013 point guard, Joseph Chealey. Chealey is an emerging point guard in his class who has picked up multiple mid-major offers over the summer, including offers from Tulane and Miami (OH). Although he is currently under the radar, his recruitment should soon pick up.
With UCF set to join the Big East, this would be Chealey’s first offer from one of the power six conferences. After losing formerly committed point guard, DJ Bowles, Central Florida is now back on the prowl for a floor general from the 2013 class. As a member of the D12 Warriors out of Florida, Chealey showcased his talent all summer in multiple AAU events. Playing alongside one of the top players from Florida in the Class of 2014, Dmitri Thompson, Chealey was able to show that he knows how to run a team.
He’ll be entering his senior season at Apopka High School in Apopka, Florida this fall and will look to pick up other big offers. There’s no word on who the leaders are or when Chealey will be making a decision, but one could guess that Central Florida is in good position. The Golden Knights of UCF are close to home and are joining arguably the best conference in the NCAA. There’s also a strong possibility of heavy minutes for Chealey at Central Florida as they’re in definite need of a 2013 point guard. As an under the radar prospect, this offer is very big for a player like Joseph Chealey, so it will be interesting to see how they impact his recruitment.
