Hawk Hill Hardwood spoke with Apopka basketball coach Eddie Jenkins about the talented 6'2 guard who turned heads at April's Pitt Jam Fest.
According to Jenkins, Joe Chealey put together a strong season in one of Florida's most talent-rich regions. Chealey averaged 12 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds per game in 2011-2012 as a junior. Apopka is in Orlando's Metro Conference, which is the same conference that produced Duke's Austin Rivers and Miami's Shane Larkin.
Jenkins described Chealey as a "long point guard with great potential and an outstanding work ethic." That outstanding work ethic manifests itself both on the court and off. At the moment, Chealey possesses a 3.8 GPA while taking a mixture of Advanced Placement and Honors classes.
On the court, Joe is a "good penetrator who favors short jumpers and floaters. He has a long wingspan and is a very fluid player."
Jenkins went on, saying that "Joe prides himself on his defensive prowess, is a student of the game, and a true leader.
Saint Joseph's is in the market for a guard or two in the class of 2013, and Joe Chealey's name is one that seems to have popped up on the Hawks' radar.
He will be playing this spring and summer with the D-12 Warriors. As his recruitment continues to unfold, stay tuned to Hawk Hill Hardwood for the latest.
