Today concludes a series of the top stock-rising recruits in the 2023 class. Next up is the 2024 class to close out the rest of the month for TDRecruits.

For now, we bring the top defensive back players from around the state of Texas who shined last season and made there names known. Here’s who you should know and watch out for this coming fall.

Biggest riser

Although already committed to the Texas Tech Red Raiders, Waxahachie’s Calvin Simpson-Hunt has been on the rise more so than any other defensive back recruit in his class.

Since the beginning of the year, Calvin has received virtually all of his offers this year and in spring. Last year, the only ones to offer Calvin were the Red Raiders, however, since our last posting of the top 2023 defensive back rankings. Calvin’s recruitment has skyrocketed and went from one division I offer to a total now of sixteen and counting. Who offered most recently you might ask; Ole Miss, Florida, Baylor, TCU, and Stanford; not to mention the others.

It will be interesting to see how the rise to stardom affects his commitment to Texas Tech now that Calvin, Waxahachie’s star defensive back has many options to play at some of the nation’s most prestigious programs around the country.

No longer under the radar

Ridge Point’s Ryan Ramey who picked up his first offer from Utah State this spring, South Oak Cliff’s Lamodrick Spencer who has received three offers this year: Utah State, Arkansas, & SMU; Lone Star Frisco’s Bruce Mitchell. All have seen a rise in his recruitment this year and have taken off after having terrific and impressive junior seasons.

Bruce Mitchell has picked up offers from Air Force, Indiana, JSU, and SMU to name a few.

Keep your eye out for these projects, and if you know of any that deserve the be on this list. Do them a favor and drop their name in the comments below. (Never know who could be watching.)
