Philadelphia, PA (Future150) -- In many ways Kaleb Joseph is an elite point guard. He has great size, good vision, great instincts, a will to win, and a high basketball IQ. Despite having all of these tools at his disposal, the nation had yet to realize Joseph's game and potential until this past season.

Now that the Nashua, New Hampshire native has broken out on the national scene, he has one goal left. 

"I want to prove that I'm the best point guard in the country," Joseph said.

Those are strong words from a tough kid who has molded his game and has become one of the top prospects in the northeast. This class has some truly special players at his position in Tyus Jones and Emmanuel Mudiay, while others such as Joel Berry, Parker Jackson-Cartwright, and Josh Perkins are looking to prove they are the top PG as well. 

But Joseph has something special about him, a toughness that was forged by cold winter nights and a burning desire to win that is obvious as soon as he steps in between the lines. Off the court the guard is all smiles, joking with teammates and coaches, but when it comes to basketball, an intensity overtakes him.

It is that intensity combined with his leadership abilities that have allowed Joseph to evolve and become the leader of one of the top AAU programs in the northeast. Many times his Mass Rivals teammates went as he went. If Kaleb had an off game, his team struggled, if Kaleb was on, so was the rout. The fact that one player can have such an impact on such a talented group of players should explain how greatly he affects the guys around him.

Whoever lands the point guard will get an instant impact player who will provide leadership and toughness, as well as an ability to create easy baskets. Joseph recently narrowed his list down to WVU, Syracuse, and Providence. The guard maintained that he would like playing time early and both WVU and Providence have an abundance of it availble. Meanwhile, Syracuse has been Kaleb's dream school since he was young, and would provide him the best chance to win big while in college. 

While it remains to be seen if Joseph looks to become the next point guard to lead the Mountaineers, decides to stay close to home as a Friar, or ends up at his childhood favorite, Cuse, one thing is for sure. Don't sleep on Kaleb Joseph anymore; the nation made that mistake once already.
