Four-star cornerback Nadab Joseph has decommitted from LSU, he announced Thursday on Twitter.
In his tweet, Joseph seemed to say that he was still considering the Tigers but wanted to look closer at the other schools who have offered him.

“I would first like to thank God for blessing me with the abilities to be able to play the game I love at a high level,” Joseph wrote. “I would also like to thank the Evans family for always being there for me. I would like to thank LSU coaching staff for always making me feel at home whenever I’m there. Last yr around this time I made a decision to commit to LSU. When I made that decision everything felt right. Every time I’m there it still feels the same but I am starting to feel that way in other places too. I want to make sure that I’m making the right decision.
“With that being said I will be decommiting from LSU. Respect My Decision.”
The 6-foot-1½, 180-pound Joseph, from Hialeah (Fla.) Champagnat Catholic, committed on the spot to LSU on June 11, 2016 after receiving an offer from the school. At the time, he did not have many of his offers from a list that currently includes Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Oregon, Penn State and Tennessee, among others.
According to 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions, Alabama now is currently considered to be the favorite to land Joseph, who received an offer from the Crimson Tide on June 6 after attending a camp at the school. He attended a second camp there on July 16.
Georgia also is believed to be well in the mix among his favorites.
In early March, Joseph told GN that his recruitment was still open despite his commitment to LSU at the time.
With Joseph’s decommitment, LSU now has 19 commitments in its 2018 recruiting class. He also marks the third recruit to decommit from the Tigers since June, following three-star defensive tackle Jamarcus Chatman and four-star outside linebacker Adam Anderson.
LSU, though, still has two defensive backs committed in the class in four-star cornerback Kelvin Joseph and three-star safety ArDarius Washington.
Joseph is considered by 247Sports Composite to be among the top 25 cornerbacks, as well as a top-225 overall prospect in the nation and top-45 overall prospect in Florida for 2018.
