2020 CB Jaheem Joseph Previews Michigan BBQ at the Big House Visit

The BBQ on July 28 will be Joseph’s first visit to Michigan.

For the first time in life, Opa Locka (Fla.) Monsignor Pace 2020 cornerback Jaheem Joseph will make a trip to the University of Michigan.

He will be in attendance for the BBQ at the Big House on July 28.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the campus and one of the most iconic stadiums in college football, which is the Big House,” Joseph said. “I’m excited to get in contact with the coaches and I want to meet Coach (Jim) Harbaugh.”

Being that it is Joseph’s first time in Ann Arbor, he said it will be a “special” trip due to the academics and athletics involving the Wolverines.

“Michigan is a very prestigious school,” Joseph said. “Even outside of sports, they are one of the top academic schools in the country, so to have a chance to play big-time football and a degree that would guarantee me to get a job after football is amazing.”

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound cornerback has offers to play for Florida Atlantic, Louisville, Marshall, Michigan and Syracuse.

“Michigan is one of the top schools for me,” Joseph said. “I mostly talk to Don Brown.”

The other school Joseph has an offer from that he is most interested in is Syracuse.

“I haven’t spoken to any of the coaches there, but my head coach told me they really like my film and size,” Joseph said of the Orange.

Coming along with Joseph, his father Tony Joseph is also excited to see what Michigan has to offer. However, he is mainly “blown away” by his son’s life opportunities through Division I football.

“He loves that Michigan is also a big-time academic school,” Jaheem said of his father. “He consistently reminds me how blessed I am because I have an opportunity to play Division I football, while others don’t.”

Jaheem believes Auburn, Nebraska and Miami (Fla.) could be the next schools to extend a scholarship offer.

The cornerback prospect unofficially visited Miami on March 31 and April 14.

“Since growing up, Miami has been my dream school,” Jaheem said.
