MLB Kendall Joseph Profile
The three-star middle linebacker prospect spoke with CUTigers two days after the Bears' win against Blue Ridge.
"We played pretty good. We won, 20-14. It was a close game, but the defense played pretty well," Joseph said.
Up next is Broome.
"They're No. 1 in the state, out of Spartanburg. We've got them at their place this Friday coming up," Joseph said. "It's been a real good season. I've played pretty well. I feel like I've helped my team pretty good. We're 10-1 right now, so we're looking pretty good."
On the offensive side of the ball this season, Joseph has 37 carries for 166 yards and 11 touchdowns. On defense, he has 62 tackles, three tackles for loss, two interceptions and a sack.
The No. 28 middle linebacker in the class of 2014 is impressed Clemson's play this season, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.
"I love how they've played, especially the defense," Joseph said. "The defense, pretty much, for the most part, has been consistent, week in and week out. They had a few question marks coming into this year, whether our defense would improve. I think it just shows that coach [Brent] Venables has really changed that defense.
"They're playing a lot better. There's just a lot of unity with this Clemson team. I love the way they've played."
Joseph has been to every Clemson home game this season. That streak will probably come to an end on Thursday when Georgia Tech comes to town.
And, after the home finale against The Citadel, his next game in Death Valley will be his first as a Tiger.
"I feel like I'm going to take it really serious, get my body in really good condition and good shape, hope I make a push for playing time," Joseph said. "If not, I'll just help the team anyway I can. Special teams, whatever it is, I feel like I can just go and help the team. I'm excited to take that next step."
