The Florida Gators picked up two commitments on Wednesday. Both of those prospects were from South Florida and were recruited by linebackers coach Randy Shannon.
Linebacker Vosean Joseph (6-1, 210, Miami, FL Norland) was the first prospect to commit to Florida on Wednesday and he’s a relatively unknown prospect to many Florida fans.
In order for GatorCountry.com to get fans more familiar with Joseph, we spoke to Joseph’s head coach Daryle Heidelburg to get his take and opinion on what Joseph brings on and off the field.
Here’s GC’s question and answer with Norland head coach Daryle Heilderburg:
GC: How would you describe Joseph as a player on the field?
A: “He’s a very good athlete for us. He punts for us, he can throw and kick really well. He has great size and speed. He’s very athletic and is fast so he can play a lot of different positions.”
GC: Where do you see him playing at the next level?
A: “I see him as a linebacker in college because he’s already 6-2, 210-pounds. In high school he plays some defensive end but I think linebacker is where his future is at.”
GC: What are Joseph’s strength’s?
A: “His tackling ability and being physical is probably his strength. He’s also smart and runs our defense for us. He calls our defense at Norland and I think that’s what coach Shannon liked him about him because he wants smart football players.”
GC: Physical or speed guy?
A: “Vosean is a combination of both actually. He can run, and runs a 4.5 in the forty but he is very physical. He likes to hit people and he likes to hit more than be in pass coverage but he’s good in pass coverage too.”
GC: Is Joseph more of a leader on the field?
A: “He’s one of our leaders off the field in the locker room. He leads us on the field by calling the plays but off the field he’s a great character kid. He gives me no problem whatsoever. He always does everything I ask him to do so he leads by example.”
GC: Is Joseph a student of the game?
A: “Vosean is always searching for more information to help him on the field. He’s very coachable and that should never be a problem for him. He puts a lot of time in by studying film so that he can call our defense.”
