Corey Raymond has him another Florida defensive back.
Nadab Joseph, a safety from Miami, committed to LSU on Saturday – a second verbal pledge in 24 hours for the program. Joseph is a 2018 prospect, entering his junior year of high school.
Dunham defensive back Derek Stingley, a 2019 prospect, committed to the Tigers on Friday.
Joseph continues a trend for LSU and its defensive backs coach. Raymond, in charge of recruiting his position and the state of Florida, has signed 16 defensive backs since 2013. Five of those were from the talent-rich Sunshine State. The list includes guys like Kevin Toliver, a freshman starter last season, Rashard Robinson, a fourth-round draft pick this year, and highly touted 2016 signee Saivion Smith, poised to secure a significant role as a rookie.
Nadab, who has not been ranked on recruiting sites, chose LSU over offers from Mississippi State, Syracuse, Temple and Bowling Green, according to 247Sports.com. He’s the third defensive back to commit in LSU’s 2018 class and the fifth verbal pledge overall.
