Austin Joseph went to the Nike Camp in Gainesville to prove himself against Florida's best athletes. The Collins Hill cornerback was a standout at the camp, and will be a player to watch for this fall.
At 6-1 and 180 pounds, Joseph has great size at the cornerback position. With and amazing 340 pound bench press, he is extremely physical at the line of scrimmage, and he runs well with a 4.5 forty. Because of his size and quickness, he could make the transition to safety on the next level, or stay a physical cover corner.
"I grew up playing wide receiver," said Joseph. "My secondary coach moved me over to corner last year, and I really liked it. I'll play both ways this year."
When asked about his favorite schools, Florida State was said quickly.
"I really like Florida State. I also like Tennessee and Texas, and I'm looking at teams like Georgia Tech, Miami, and Stanford too. Southern Miss has offered me a scholarship already."
