While there are still some late signings coming in for the class of 2021, it’s time to look deeper into the class of 2022.

The San Diego Section often gets overlooked because the Southern Section is much larger and features some of the top programs in the nation.

But San Diego features excellent programs who can compete with some of the top teams in the state like Helix, Oceanside, Lincoln and Torrey Pines.

Below is a list of the top 10 defensive backs in San Diego's class of 2022. This list is alphabetical by last name.

Dasean Burdette, Eastlake, Chula Vista

Burdette is a lengthy cornerback who excels in multiple coverages. He is 6-foot-1 which helps him in man coverage in the redzone, although Eastlake does not play a lot of man coverage. Burdette can cover guys in the slot as well as out wide although when he is in the slot he's usually in zone coverage. He could also be used a safety in cover 2 because he closes to the ball quickly and does a solid job not drawing penalties.
