Who are the top defensive backs in KY in 2019?

Recommended Posts

This is a strong year for DBs in Kentucky. If one (or in Boyle's case, two) of these guys has a spot in your last line of defense, your secondary's in good hands.

 

The obvious ones for me...

 

Vito Tisdale (Sr., Bowling Green/offers from UK, Oklahoma, and Alabama)

 

Devin Neal (Sr., Frederick Douglass/Cincinnati commit)

2018 - 55 tackles/1 int.

Devin Neal JR season - Devin Neal highlights - Hudl

 

Reese Smith (Sr., Boyle County/WVU commit)

2018 - 55 tackles/3 ints./2 forced fumbles

Junior Season Highlights - Reese Smith highlights - Hudl

 

Landen Bartleson (Sr., Boyle County/Notre Dame commit)

2018 - 35 tackles/2 ints.

 

Josh Minkins (Sr., Ballard/Louisville commit)

2018 - 3 interceptions

Junior Year Highlights - Josh Minkins Jr highlights - Hudl

 

Tre Goodin (Sr., Taylor County/EKU commit)

2018 - 63 tackles

From watching Vito play, i’d Say there’s been a max of 5 passes thrown to his side of the field through the first 2 games.

I've been very impressed with his tackling as well. He gets low, and tackles at the proper level.

Keep an eye on Bryce Yates at Manual. The numbers won’t show much cause he’s only been targeted 4 times this season.

My guy, Bryce Yates! He's a great player and a great kid. He definitely deserves to be listed.

Also, Adriene Bailey at Eminence is having a strong start to the season. Top 5 in the state in INT.

Drakeford was a game changer at safety last Friday night, in Lawrenceburg. Tremendous athlete.
