Joseph To Sign Early or Late?

Cory Joseph is a coveted 2010 point guard. He's taken a handful of official visits and still may take another. Will he sign early or late?

Cory Joseph has some important decisions to make.

Already the 6-foot-3, 170-pound point guard has taken four official visits. He's been to Villanova, Connecticut, Texas and most recently Minnesota.

"[The visit] was good," Joseph said. "I got to see my brother and that was good. I got to talk to coach Tubby [Smith] and their staff. They are good people. I hung out with the players and they were cool. It was a great visit."

Now, Joseph, of Las Vegas (Nev.) Findlay Prep, must decide if he wants to take his fifth and final official visit.

"I've taken four, but I'm not sure if I'm going to do another one," Joseph told "I'm going to talk to my mom this weekend. After I talk to her this weekend I might set my last official visit or I might not."

The schools vying for the last official visit are Florida, UNLV and Mississippi State.

"All the visits I've been on have been good," he said. "They are set up to be fun. All the visits I went on were great. I'm just trying to get a feel and talk to all the players on the visits. I'm going to talk to my mom and I'm going to go from there."

Joseph, a five-star prospect, also has to decide whether he'll sign early or late. At this point, he said he's not feeling pressure to decide by the early signing period deadline.

"I really don't know," Joseph said about signing early. "I'm not sure yet. When I feel 100-percent then I'll decide. I'm trying to get the best feel for the programs. Once I feel 100-percent about a program then that's when I'll commit."

The Canada native is ranked No. 22 overall and No. 6 on's 2010 point guard list.
