2001 Media Guide: Branden Joe is a versatile ball carrier who can play fullback or tailback, but is expected to start out the season at the former position … punishing runner and a fine blocker with surprising speed … sat out much of the fall and all of spring practice with a shoulder injury, so the coaches still have not gotten a good look at him … will get a chance to show what he can do in the fall, if he can get healthy … has the size and athletic ability to help out on the special teams while he waits his turn at running back … from the same high school as former Ohio State All-America and Butkus Award winner Andy Katzenmoyer.

2000 Season: Redshirted.

High School: Division I first-team all-Ohio by The Associated Press … USA Today honorable mention All-America … outstanding all-around athlete … rated as the No. 7 prospect in the Midwest by The Detroit Free Press … rated as the No. 29 prospect in the Midwest by SuperPrep … rated as the No. 23 running back in the nation by Rivals100.com … rushed for 1,226 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior … started at both running back and linebacker … as a junior, gained 620 yards rushing in six games before breaking his foot … excellent baseball player.
