The Nebraska Cornhuskers are already addressing severe needs of the 2014 cycle with the commitment of cornerback Boaz Joseph.

Ranked as the No. 119 cornerback in the nation by the 247Composite index, Joseph had been identified as a legitimate Nebraska prospect, but a late surge by the Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals left his eventual commitment in doubt.
He attended camps at Alabama, Florida State and Miami (FL) among others and was scheduled to officially visit Louisville this weekend.
The 6'1" 185-pound defensive back will likely redshirt his initial year at Nebraska before joining Josh Mitchell, Jonathan Rose and Daniel Davie in the 2014 secondary.
Joseph's commitment give the Huskers 24 on the year, but don't expect the Big Red to stop now. There are still some offensive linemen and wide receivers on the radar. We'll see if the hot streak continues.
