Other Deciding, Joseph Still Waiting

Cory Joseph is still in a holding pattern. The McDonald's All-American is down to five schools, but hasn't set an announcement date.

While a handful of top 50 prospects are making their announcements on Wednesday, a highly regarded recruit out of Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep will not.

Cory Joseph, a native of Canada, is still considering five programs – Texas, Villanova, UNLV, Minnesota and Connecticut. According to Findlay assistant coach Todd Simon, a decision likely won't come until next week at the earliest.

"I think he's going to wait until after the Jordan game," Simon told Scout.com. "That's my opinion. …I think it'll be sometime after the Jordan game for sure. I don't think he'll make it this week."

So what has caused Joseph, Scout.com's No. 22 prospect, to wait so long? Is he torn between a few schools, scared to make the decision or just simply waiting to see what his peers are going to do?

"I think he wants to see where the chips fall," Simon said. "It's coaching season now where some coaches could be leaving for jobs. We are getting towards the end of that. Now he wants to see who is going where."

"I think he's doing it kind of smart to see who is going pro and who is going where," he added. "Then he'll make his decision."

According to Simon, the only thing left for the 6-foot-3, 175-pound point guard to do is make his final decision.

While a few of the nation's top prospects make their decision, Joseph will watching and working on a decision of his own.
