Updated: August 19, 2013 2:30PM



Valparaiso has reportedly looked to Canada for the first member of its Class of 2014.

Max Joseph, a 6-foot point guard from Montreal, made an oral commitment to play basketball for the Crusaders, according to verbalcommits.com.

“PROUD to announce that G Max Joseph has verbally committed to VALPARAISO UNIVERSITY!” Rouel Hidalgo tweeted. Hidalgo is listed as a communication director/assistant coach for Brookwood Elite AAU. Joseph’s name is on the Brookwood Elite roster on its website.

In another tweet, Hidalgo wrote: “After gaining interest from Texas Tech, Utah St, NMSU and others, Max’s relationship with Coach Drew and staff weighed heavy on his decision.”

ND’s Jones, Daniels on Biletnikoff watch list: Notre Dame wide receivers TJ Jones and DaVaris Daniels were named to the Biletnikoff Award preseason watch list on Tuesday.

Jones had 50 catches for 649 yards in 2012. He had four receiving touchdowns. Daniels caught 31 passes for 490 yards last year. He had six catches for 115 yards against Alabama in the BCS title game.
