Things have been quiet relatively speaking on the commitment front for Mississippi State recently, but that changed yesterday as the Bulldogs added their 18 commitment to the class of 2015. Pascagoula, Mississippi defensive end Keith Joseph Jr. committed to MSU yesterday, a move that will allow him to follow in the footsteps of his father, Keith Sr., who played at MSU in the early 90's. Joseph Jr. told the Clarion Ledger this about finally coming to a decision:
"Me and my dad had talked about it before and I just woke up this morning, went to football practice at the beach and told my dad I'm ready," Joseph said. "He said, 'let's make the phone call.'
The 6'3", 220 lb Joseph Jr. is a 3-star recruit according to 247 sports rankings. In addition to his MSU offer, Keith holds offers from Arizona State, Cincinnati and Nebraska, among others.

MSU is getting a really good rush end out of Joseph. Explosive out of his stance and quick on the edge. Usually wins his one-on-ones.— Robbie Faulk (@Rivals_Robbie) June 20, 2014
At 6'3, 220, Joseph still has growing to do. Coaches think he can get to 6'4 250— Robbie Faulk (@Rivals_Robbie) June 20, 2014
