After blossoming this spring and summer on the AAU circuit, Whitney Young's Joseph Toye saw his recruitment pick up with several offers, including a few from high-major programs like Iowa and Missouri. But before the talented junior picks his college destination, he's chosen a new home to finish out his high school career.
The Toye family confirmed with the Hoops Report on Monday that the athletic 6-7 wing will be leaving Whitney Young and is headed to La Lumiere School in LaPorte, Ind., this fall. Toye will be heading to La Lumiere with his twin sister who also plays basketball.
Toye, who is also a track star in the spring, played a role off the bench for a sectional finalist last season as a sophomore. He's leaving a Whitney Young team where he was projected as a starter and that is expected to be the preseason No. 1 team in the state.
When the City/Suburban Hoops Report's post-July player rankings are released, Toye would have been among the top 10 prospects in Illinois in the Class of 2015.
Several players from the state of Illinois have landed at La Lumiere over the years, including recent players like Jalen James (Chicago Hope Academy) last season and both Jay Simpson (Champaign Central) and Bobo Drummond (Peoria Central) two years ago.
