Joseph will snatches the 22nd spot in LSU's 2018 class. Schools are under a strict mandate this year: They cannot sign more than 25 players; 21 signed in the inaugural early period last month. Prospects have a second period to sign, beginning with the traditional signing day, which is Feb. 7. As a senior, Joseph led the Hornets to the Division I select semifinals. The Co-Defensive MVP of District 4-5A finished with 82 tackles, 9 tackles for loss and 3 interception. Joseph also was a prolific return specialist who averaged 44 yards per kickoff return and 36 yards per punt return with four returns for TDs.
