Toye to transfer and adds offers

La Lumiere added a big piece to the puzzle with heavily recruited 2015 wing Joseph Toye.

One of the best 2015 products from the Windy City will now attend La Porte (Ind) La Lumiere. Joseph Toye, a three-star small forward, made the decision to transfer from Whitney Young to the Indiana prep school, and also he is continues to pick up high major offers.

At the end of the day Toye just felt that La Lumiere was the right fit for him on and off the court.

"I think it will be very good for my game," he said of the transfer. "It will give me a feel for being away from home and what college is like. Also La Lumiere has great academic support with small classroom sizes. I think that is something that will be good for me. Also the basketball element is at a high level, so I think it is a great move."

A lot of coaches will be making their way to La Porte to check out Toye in the fall. In fact Toye has been racking up scholarship offers recently.

"I just got offers from Iowa and Missouri," said Toye. "Also I hold offers from Memphis, Creighton, Providence, Bradley, Auburn, and UIC."

The offer from Iowa was his first Big Ten offer, and it was one that Toye took notice of.

"I was there earlier this year and I really liked the school," said Toye. "It is a great environment and of course the Big Ten is one of the best conferences in America. I think Iowa is a great school."

Also Missouri is a school that has put in some work with Toye and also made an impression with the offer.

"Missouri is also a good school," said Toye. "I really like their coaching staff. They are real good people. My AAU coaches and my trainer Tim Anderson know those guys very well."

At the moment Toye has no visits scheduled for the fall. He is just focused on getting better and improving on the court with no timetable for a college decision.
