LSU cornerback Jalen Collins
Players: David Jenkins, Micah Eugene, Jalen Collins, Ronald Martin
LSU earned the moniker "Defensive Back University" due to the amazing success of the secondary, but it was not because of this recruiting class.
Recruiting rankings may not always be accurate, and this class is the prime example. The four defensive backs' careers, at this point, have been in reverse order of their original ranking.
Ronald Martin, despite being the lowest-rated defensive back of the group, has turned out to be the best player. He has three career interceptions and will be in contention to be a starter as a senior this season.
Jalen Collins earned Freshman All-SEC honors in 2012 as a redshirt freshman. But in 2013, he was phased out of the starting lineup with the rise of true freshmen corners Tre'Davious White and Rashard Robinson. He should be a reliable backup to the sophomore duo next season.
Micah Eugene left LSU last season, per Ross Dellenger of The Advocate. He had an up-and-down career but was a versatile player in defensive coordinator John Chavis' exotic schemes.
David Jenkins transferred from LSU to TCU, where he was eventually kicked off for burglary charges, according to Stefan Stevenson of The Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Jenkins eventually made his way to Iowa Western Community College.
