Kirby Smart simply can’t stop himself, flips Alabama commit Nadab Joseph to the ‘Dawgs.

NCAA Football: SEC Championship-Georgia vs Auburn Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the recruiting waters, Kirby Smart emerges from the depths to snag another one.

Miami safety Nadab Joseph visited Georgia late in the recruiting process but appeared set to stick with his commitment to the Alabama Crimson Tide this morning. But it was not to be, and the Bulldog coaching staff landed one nationally ranked recruit on the day. Joseph is tabbed the #18 cornerback in the nation and the #161 prospect overall by 247Sports. Joseph was an LSU commit prior to his Tide pledge, but had been on the UGA staff’s radar for quite a while.

It’s easy to see why. Joseph projects as the type of ballhawking safety Dominick Sanders has grown into. He’s also a physical tackler for his size, and at 6’1.5, 180 pounds could grow into the star position as well.

Georgia now stands at 22 commitments, including 4 players who have verbally pledged but not yet signed their letters of intent. Joseph may not be the last defensive back in this class. Heck, at this rate he may not be the last commit tonight. Maybe your brother-in-law will commit to the G. Maybe your mailman, or the barista at your local coffee shop. On this day, it’s all coming up Kirby.

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
