JD Coffey is an elite safety and Billy Bowman will likely play safety as well. You will have a hard time beating this 1-2 punch in the defensive backfield. It all just depends on if Bowman ends up at safety or finds a home at corner or on offense.
The Cardinals are doing a very good job recruiting, especially at safety with Jaraye Williams and Bralyn Oliver, Jackson Hamilton, Kani Walker, Benjamin Perry and others who can play the position. This is a deep class.
Odds and ends: Alabama has a nice potential duo with Kaine Williams and new commitment Kadarius Calloway, who could be a safety or even grow into a linebacker. ... Steven Ortiz is a great safety get for Minnesota from Arizona. ... Georgia, LSU, Wisconsin and Washington all have elite safeties in their classes.
