    Who are the top defensive backs in Kentucky for 2020?

    These are the guys that make opposing quarterbacks think twice about throwing in their direction. We've got a couple of legit power five DBs, along with some guys just off the P5 grid with a chance to move up.

    Here are the ones that stood out to me:

    Jantzen Dunn - South Warren
    6'2", 180 lbs
    Offers from Alabama, Ohio State, UK, UofL, Oklahoma, Florida, WVU, USC, and Texas, among others

    #12 Dunn JR-SZN Highlights - Jantzen Dunn highlights - Hudl

    Jordan Lovett - North Hardin
    6'2", 200 lbs
    2019: Recorded the second most interceptions in a single season in state history with 15.
    Offers from UK, UofL, Cincinnati, Tennessee, WVU, and Purdue, among others

    Eli Blakey - Manual
    6'2", 185 lbs
    2019: 55 tackles/3 ints.
    Offers from Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Miami (OH), Harvard, and Army.

    Frederick Douglass may not have one player that is a top 3 or 4 but I feel that is where the Broncos are the strongest. They return 5 of their top 7 DBís from last years and 3 of them are just juniors and 1 sophomore. Two of these young men already have offers from UK and Louisville. They are juniors Ty Bryant and Dane Key. They are very good players on both sides of the ball. I feel several of the Broncos defensive backs will be well know once the season starts.
