Another Offer is Out

I'm not sure how I missed this, but according to Scout.com, the Gophers have made an offer to 6-3 Shooting Guard Devoe Joseph from Pickering High School in Ajax, Ontario, Canada. Yes, Canada.

According to Scout, Joseph is a four-star player who they rank as #19 SG in the country. Over at Rivals, he's also a four-star, ranked the #22 SG, so the kid can definitely play.

What really got me excited however, was his scouting report:
1) Big Time Scorer
2) Mid-Range Game
3) Upside/Potential
4) Can Really Shoot it
5) Played in four tournaments this year and won MVP in all four

His negatives, ball-handling and penetration, shouldn't matter too much, since Nathen Garth is already signed on for that class to play point guard.

Joseph is another player (like Draymond Green) that Tubby was recruiting at Kentucky, and has continued to recruit now that he's at Minnesota. He's being looked at by several schools, but according to scout has only received offers from the Gophers, Duquesne, and Washington State so far. The Gophers, I would think, are the most attractive offer of the group, so hopefully he can get signed before anybody else gets a hold of him. I like what I'm hearing, and I think a 2008 class with Joseph, Garth, and Draymond Green would be pretty sweet.

Plus it would be awesome to have a guy named Devoe so we could yell Devoe the same way Chris Tucker yells it in Friday.
