Florida High School PG Has Six Offers

Apopka (FL) Senior High School 2013 point guard Joe Chealey, who plays AAU ball with Team D-12 Warriors, already has six offers on the table.

  • Name: Joseph Chealey
  • Classification: 2013
  • High School: Apopka Sr. HS (Apopka, FL)
  • AAU Team: Team D-12 Warriors
  • Position: Point Guard
  • HT-WT: 6-foot-3, 167 pounds
  • Colleges of Interest: Florida Gulf Coast (offer), Florida State, Georgia Southern (offer), Jacksonville, Kansas State, Mississippi State, North Florida (offer), Tennessee, Tennessee Tech (offer), UCF, UTEP (offer), Winthrop (offer), Wichita State

  • "UTEP, Georgia Southern, Winthrop, Florida Gulf Coast, Jacksonville, North Florida, Tennessee Tech have offered scholarships," said Chealey.

    Several other colleges are also showing interest in him.

    "Mississippi State, Florida State, UCF, Tennessee, USC, Wichita State and Kansas State are also recruiting me," he said. " Kansas and UConn have both contacted (AAU) Coach Morales."

    Chealey talked about his overall offensive game.

    "The thing with me is I can get my teammates involved in the game," said the 6-foot-3 point guard. "I can also make plays. If the defensive is sagging off of me I can knock down a jumper. I can also penetrate into the lane and get my own shot or dump it off to the big man. The main thing is making plays, whether it be me or one of my teammates."

    Due to the talent level on his AAU team compared to his high school team, his roles are different.

    "For my AAU team, I like to get the other players involved, but for my high school team I have to do a little bit more scoring," said Chealey.
