Jim Larranaga’s Miami Hurricanes have remained in contention for 2021 point guard Bensley Joseph.
The four-star mentioned the Canes in his ‘Top 5’ list that included Boston College, Georgetown, Providence and Marquette.
Joseph is listed as the No. 14 point guard and No. 1 player in his state on 247Sports’ Composite rankings. He’s the No. 68 overall player in ESPN’s Top 100.
Listed at 6-foot-1, 165 pounds, Joseph thrives in attacking the basket and creating scoring opportunities for himself and teammates. At the same time, the lefty shooter has a great touch from mid-range and beyond the arc.
Defensively, Joseph’s pickpocketing makes him hard to blow by, which ultimately allows him to remain confident during all periods of a game.
The Massachusetts native averaged 15.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and two steals per game for Cushing Academy (MA).
Miami offered the 2021 guard back in late March, expressing interest ever since.
Joseph showed his leadership and ability to spread the ball with Expression Elite at the Nike EYBL circuit last season, where he also finished fourth in steals percentage (3.1). He also had the opportunity to practice for the USA junior national team.
Bensley announced that he’ll be attending Putnam Science Academy (Putnam, Conn.) next season.
