LSU is famously known as “DBU,” and it’s 2018 recruiting class is strongly reflecting that.
In the hours following LSU’s first high school prospects camp, the Tigers picked up a commitment from Florida defensive back Nadab Joseph.
Joseph, a 6-foot-2, 173-pound safety out of Edison High School (Miami, Fla.), earned an offer from LSU following Thursday’s camp session. He also held offers from SEC West rival Mississippi State, as well as Syracuse, Temple and Bowling Green.
The budding Sunshine State product is the fifth member of the Tigers’ 2018 recruiting class and the third defensive back. He joins elite cornerback Kelvin Joseph and New Orleans cornerback Corione Harris as part of LSU’s future secondary.
Joseph impressed LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond during defensive back workouts early on in the camp, then drew the attention of coach Les Miles during one-on-one and seven-on-seven drills, culminating in the offer on Thursday. Two days later, Joseph had settled in on his decision.
