Despite LSU commitment, 4-star S Nadab Joseph says he’s still open

Four-star safety Nadab Joseph has been committed to LSU for nine months, but he said he is still weighing all his options.

“I chose LSU because it feels like home away from home,” Joseph told GN. “I also feel like Coach (Corey) Raymond (secondary coach) can get me to where I need to be.”

Joseph (6-feet-1, 180 pounds), from Miami Edison, is among the top-25 safeties in the country and a top-250 prospect overall in the class of 2018.

Joseph committed to LSU on June 11, 2016. He has more than 20 offers, including Auburn, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee in the SEC.

“I’m a dog and a football player at the end of the day,” Joseph said. “If a coach needs me at defensive tackle, just tell me what I’m supposed to do and send me in.”

Joseph says he has built a good relationship with the LSU coaches.

“My relationship is great with the whole staff,” he said. “I speak to those guys once a week at least.”

Joseph will visit Baton Rouge later this month.

“The only thing I have scheduled this month as far as visits is the LSU spring game,” Joseph said. “But I’ll probably be hitting a couple more spots also.”

So, is Joseph still 100 percent committed to LSU?

“I am, but I’m open to others,” Joseph said. “I really want to get it down to five schools and go from there.”

Joseph doesn’t lack confidence, saying whoever signs him “will be getting the top defensive back in the country, and they won’t have to worry about balls being caught on that side for a few years.”
