Joseph Toye has offers from Auburn, Bradley, Creighton, Illinois-Chicago, Iowa, Memphis, Missouri, and Providence. He has taken unofficial visits to DePaul, Northwestern, Illinois, and Iowa.
The 6-7, 200 lb. small forward from Chicago has had quite a summer. In June, he played in the DePaul team camp and was named to the Nike Elite 100 camp and the Pango All-American camp.
It was at Pangos where Toye found the competition challenging.
"It was fun," Joseph of the camp in Southern California. "I got to play with some great players like Stanley Johnson and Emmanuel Mudiay. I just watched them and tried to pick up some stuff from their game and just tried to show my skills out there. I did pretty well against them."
In July, Toye got to play with his Meanstreets teammates in the Nike EYBL Peach Jam in South Carolina. Toye switched to the Meanstreets AAU program for the challenge and exposure of playing in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL).
"I just wanted to play in the EYBL because I feel like I would get challenged more than I was before," said Toye. "I feel like every time you play in the EYBL, you're playing against a great team. I felt like it was a better opportunity. Pretty much every game you have 20 coaches watching you, it's a great experience."
Toye is an athletic wing. He's also qualified for the IHSA Class 3A state track and field meet in the high jump, long jump, and finished seventh in state in the triple jump.
"My biggest strength is my ability to get to the basket," said Toye.
Toye is ranked as the 16th best Small Forward by Scout.com for the class of 2015. He sees himself as playing both the shhoting guard and small forward position at the next level.
"I'm always working on my shooting and my ballhandling," said Joseph. "That's what I focus on so I can be a two guard as well as a three."
