Nathaniel Joseph, the four-star wide receiver from Miami, will stay local to play college football, committing to the University of Miami. Nicknamed “Ray Ray,” the Hurricanes continue to add big names in their Class of 2023 recruiting.
Joseph de-committed from Clemson in early June to explore his options. After meeting the new Hurricanes coaching staff, he decided to join the U. Joseph commits to Miami two days after four-star QB recruit Jaden Rashada pulled the trigger to join the Hurricanes. Joseph also received offers from 24 other universities.
“Even when I sit down and watch film with coach Gattis and go over how he wants to use me, he breaks it down like no other. He lays it out plain and clear how he wants to use me and shows me how I can make an impact in his offense. I mean, it’s just great.”
Where does Nathaniel Joseph Rank?
ESPN ranks Nathaniel Joseph No. 142 in the Class of 2023 top 300. He becomes the third four-star recruit to join the Hurricanes (Rashada and WR Robby Washington). The 5-foot-8, 170-pound athlete received an 83 scout grade and currently places 22nd in the country at wide receiver.

Nathaniel Joseph tallies as the Hurricanes’ ninth committed recruit. First-year head coach Mario Cristobal has been making magic happen in Coral Gables, reeling in a surprising amount of highly-touted prospects. He promises more big commitments are on the way.
With Joseph’s commitment, Miami’s recruiting class jumps to No. 26 in the 247Sports national rankings. As coach Cristobal continues to bring in big recruits to Miami, fans could be getting a glimpse of the return of Miami football. Can the Hurricanes resurrect the dynasty they once built?
