Its important to get a leg up in the lasted and greatest players to know that could make impacts for their respective teams this season.


Here is our top class of 2025 defensive recruits to know:


Top 6

Devin Sanchez (25) | 6-2 / 170 CB | North Shore

With his next level size at 6-foot-2, with long arms and his athletic ability, it is no wonder why Devin has 12 early division I offers from schools like Alabama, Michigan, Oklahoma, and others. Devin is a very talented cover corner who can play pressed or floated over receivers and run with anyone stride for stride. Devin shows tremendous body control and awareness of the field having the ability to turn, flip his hips and contort his body to either intercept or bat down the football is phenomenal. Great athlete who will be special for North Shore and be a highly rated defensive back with offers from all over the country.

Caleb Chester (25) | 6-1 / 170 CB | Fort Bend Marshall

Fort Bend Marshalls defensive back Caleb Chester has generated much interest in the form of offers very well before putting a lot of film on tape. The Kansas Jayhawks where some of the first to offer however since this past April of this year Chester has received offers from schools like Florida State, UofH and just made an unofficial visit to OU just last month in July. Look for Caleb to be special on the feild for years to come and be a recruit with many division I offers and be highly ranked.

Deyjhon Pettaway (25) | 5-10/165 CB | Paetow

Brother of Paetow LB 2023 recruit Daymion Sanford, Deyjhon holds three earlier offers from school like LSU, Ole Miss and Texas A&M who is noteably an Aggies commit. From seeing Deyjohn in his training videos on social media he is smooth in his back pedal and shows great athleticsm trailing receivers. Film should be special tp watch those season on the field for Paetow.

Joseph Albright (25) | 5-10 / 160 S | Aldine Eisenhower

Albright is a hard hitting defenders who has the speed and agility to cover side line to sideline and is not afraid to take the right angles and light ball carriers up. Big time hitter who is a tremendous athlete that can perform on defense or special teams.

Cadon Tennison (25) | 5-11 / 175 S | Gilmer

Candon is an athlete who can play both sides of the ball at quarterback and defensive back, however, his athleticsm and skill sets pair well with the defensive back position. Against the pass, Candon can sniff out plays and shows tremendous awareness of the feild. Breaks in front of passes easily with speed and agility and can make plays on the football. Look for him to draw in some interest this season.

Maliek Hawkins (25) | 6-0 / 160 CB | Allen

Younger brother of 2024 Allen Quarterback recruit Michael Hawkins. This kid has terrific pedigree. Fathers is Ex-NFL and in addiotna to that he looks like a tremendous talent to know. Could be the reason why he holds an early offer from Arkansas.
