The 2025 class is loaded with DB talent. Today we are taking at some of the DB’s that are a few big plays away from big time recognition.
Baldwin has been on a steady increase in his recruiting stock over the off season. He excelled in 2 other sports, wrestling and track and field, and made states in both. Just as predicted, he picked up a few offers since last off-season UNC Charolette, JMU, Kent State, and Boston College being the latest. He had a solid 2022 season making plays sideline to sideline. Lookout for Baldwin to possibly have a breakout year with 2 years of varsity experience.
Dorsey comes in at #16 but keep an eye on some movement around mid-season rankings. The hard-hitting safety could play a much larger role in the stags defense this season now that he’s a varsity veteran. He has great size and shows versatility, making plays from corner, safety, and on special teams. He currently holds 3 offers from USF, Temple and UNC-Charolette.
Barnes hit the scene late last season, landing his first offer from Maryland in January. Since then, he’s been on a steady rise gaining more attention from scouts in the northeast. He holds 5 offers including Akron and Kent State and took visits to Villanova and Rutgers over this offseason. Barnes was a starter for the owls during the 2023 season and played very well, he has a very fluid and confident playstyle. Expect Barnes to be one of the Junior leaders of this team on their journey back to States.
This lengthy DB transfer has a big opportunity ahead of him. With 2 of the top DB’s in the state graduating in 2024 he will have the opportunity to step in and show his talent on a national level. Look for turner to contribute on the offensive side of the ball as well at receiver. He has the athleticism and speed to break off some big plays. Since making the move to SFA turner has landed offers from Louisville and Toledo.
Simms had an impressive 2023 season, racking up a handful of interceptions and a pick-6. He also contributes on offense in the pass game from the slot position finding the endzone after demonstrating some of his explosion and elusiveness. Simms earned first team all-league defense honors and earned all-league honors in track and field too. This will be Simms third year on varsity at Woodson, expect him to have a pretty impactful season.
Jefferson played a supporting role in 2023 but was still able to show how valuable he is to a defense. He has great size and in a sure tackler. He’s flies around and tackles with no fear, as well as executing his assignment in zone. He is another DB on this SFA defense that will get more opportunities with this senior class on its way out. He currently holds 4 offers including Penn State and Virginia Tech. Don’t be surprised if you see some big hits from Jefferson this season.
