YAHTZEE! While most of the BBN was getting tucked into bed Monday night, reports were coming out fast about former LSU defensive back and transfer, Kelvin Joseph.
Around 9 pm ET on Monday night, it was reported that Joseph was in Lexington taking a visit, and not even two hours later, Joseph announced his commitment to the University to Kentucky.
Joseph’s commitment follows a “Jarren Williams” type journey, as he entered the transfer portal twice before committing to Kentucky over the likes of Florida, Auburn, Mississippi St., and others.
Joseph is undoubtedly one of the most talented gets in the Secondary to ever choose to play at Kentucky.
As a standout player back in high school, Joseph was as the 42nd overall recruit (24/7 Sports), and had his pick of where to attend college receiving offers from practically every college, including Alabama and Clemson.
In his lone season at LSU, Joseph played in nearly every regular game, however, that time was limited in a very loaded LSU secondary. In that limited time, Joseph amassed 12 tackles and one pass deflection for the season.
One thing to note is that during Joseph’s rocky tenure at LSU, the one game that Joesph did miss was the Fiesta Bowl, as he was suspended for a “violation of team rules”. Coach Mark Stoops and Company have shown the ability to develop players off the field and will look to do the same with Joseph.
Joseph will join an already loaded and historic 2020 recruiting class that could help Kentucky Football to take the BIG step.
P.S. It looks like Joseph is already doing his part on the recruiting trail and is recruiting former LSU teammate, defensive back, Mannie Netherly, who announced he entered the transfer portal on Monday night.
