The hottest Class of 2023 Defensive Back recruits in the DMV
The DMV area has seen its status as a hotbed of talent certified in the past several months. Covid-19 forced many schools in the area to either not be able to play during the 2020 season, postpone their season to the spring of 2021, or play only a few games. Being able to play a full season of games has tremendously helped recruiting in the DMV and the area is currently on fire.
National Radar takes a look at some of the hottest defensive back recruits in the DMV area. These prospects currently have FBS offers. We'll have an under-the-radar list in the near future.
