Transfer Portal Rankings: Top 10 defensive backs
The transfer portal has slowed down as we are in July, but with so many players changing schools rankings are a must. Here is my rating of the top 10 defensive backs who have switched schools this cycle.
CLASS OF 2023 RANKINGS: Rivals100
RIVALS CAMP SERIES: Info/coverage on 2021 camp series
1. Key Lawrence, Oklahoma
Lawrence brings his talent from Tennessee and could have an impact on the national title race as a cog in what should be a defense that continues to improve.
2. Tykee Smith, Georgia
The former West Virginia star joins a nasty defense where the secondary was one of the question marks.
3. Derion Kendrick, Georgia
A lockdown cornerback who has struggled at times, he fills a massive need from Clemson despite some off-field question marks.
4. Dreshun Miller, Auburn
5. Jaiden Lars-Woodbey, Boston College
6. Tyrique Stevenson, Miami
Stevenson will be a key outside corner for the Hurricanes from Georgia, and he has the ability to be All-ACC.
7. TJ Carter, TCU
Carter is a big get from Memphis and should help a secondary that lost some key players to the NFL.
8. Kenyatta Watson II, Georgia Tech
The Texas transfer has a ton of talent and heads back home to the Atlanta area to help a struggling secondary.
