LSU Assistant since 2017, Joseph has been recruiting for Nebraska for about a week. He said the Husker brand always carries weight on the recruiting trail.
âWell, southerners, they’re curious about Nebraska,â he said. âThey understand that I went here (from 1988 to 1991), and it was my school. But I think the mark is still there. Ultimately you tip into a winning season. And it starts to rebuild itself. . “
He added that he had met all of his receivers as soon as he arrived at Lincoln, and that he then met individually Zavier Betts and Omar Manning.
Joseph, from New Orleans, looked genuinely happy to be back in Lincoln. He arrived in Nebraska as a much-vaunted recruit known for his optional magic at Archbishop Shaw High School near Marrero, Louisiana.
âIt’s a strange feeling to come back,â he said. âYou know, you feel the butterflies seeing the stadium and seeing the city, and seeing how the city has developed. You really think, okay, it’s not the Lincoln that I left, but this it’s the Lincoln that I’m going to hug my family and just try to get things done. ”

The conversation turned nostalgic, with Joseph acknowledging that as a high school star he was inclined to sign with Oklahoma because he liked Barry Switzer’s outgoing personality. He felt it matched his personality.
