Last week, we introduced the top five prospects in the state for the Class of 2017. This week, we take a look at the Midlands top defensive players from the senior class.
1. Shaun Moore, safety, Spring Valley: Underrated big-bodied defensive back that has proven he can come off of the edge as a linebacker. Projects as strong safety or linebacker at next level.
2. Octavious Pringle, defensive tackle, Brookland-Cayce: Strong pass rusher. Played the edge for the Bearcats, but will be a 3-tech tackle at the next level.
3. Micah Byrd-Brown, linebacker, Blythewood: Undersized, but strong against the run and good in coverage. Pad-level player with good tackling skills.
4. Daquan Wells, defensive back, Lexington: Great hips, able to turn and run with receivers. Is dangerous on offense as well.
5. Kerryon Richardson, defensive back, Airport: One of the top athletes in the Midlands area. Strong coverage skills at cornerback.
