HOLLYWOOD — Somehow, Edwin Joseph is a player college coaches have had on their radar for years but haven’t really noticed until the past month or so.

Things started to change after Chaminade-Madonna, the No. 1 team in Class 1M, beat Dillard in the second week of the season. Joseph’s play on both sides of the ball — especially on defense — finally made some of the state’s top programs take notice.

“A lot of college coaches were texting me,” Joseph said. “I was very excited because I think it’s something I deserved because of how hard I’ve been working. It was a very fun experience, definitely.”

Miami offered three days after Chaminade’s 49-28 come-from-behind win against Dillard. Florida State and Louisville offered a day after the Hurricanes did. South Carolina and Auburn offered a few weeks later.

Suddenly, Joseph is a hot commodity in recruiting circles.

It happens every year. Players who didn’t receive a ton of attention before their senior season quickly become desired. Last year, it was lineman such as Cardinal Gibbons’ Ahmad Moten and Creekside’s Matt McCoy.
