The second and final signing period is quickly approaching next month and prospects are nearing the end of their recruiting process or possibly just beginning it. Here is a in-depth list of some of the top defensive backs available across the region in the 2021 class.

Although already committed to Columbia University, McDonald remains unsigned and has decided to wait until the second and final signing day to seal the deal. The O’Dea product has good length for the position and displays fantastic natural ball skills and a strong understanding of zone responsibilities and good overall field awareness at the third level from both the outside and nickel corner position.  A natural smooth back-pedaler that does not take false steps and has a natural transition when flipping his hips, he also breaks well to ball carriers and takes good angles in space to ball carriers with outside leverage while playing with good physicality while in man coverage.
