2023 Denton Guyer safety drops his top eight schools

·2 min read

One of the top safeties in the 2023 class, Ryan Yaites released his top eight schools for recruitment. The LSU Tigers and Ole Miss Rebels make up the only SEC schools on the list for the Texas product. The Texas Longhorns and Texas Tech Red Raiders are the only in-state competition for the top 10 players in the Lone Star State.

Yaites shows exceptional ball-hawking skills at the position which leads you to believe he can play in one-on-one coverage and not just a safety playing single-high coverage. Some view him as a cornerback at the next level.

“He’s a big, physical cornerback for us,” Gallegos said of Yaites, who the Irish are looking at as a cornerback. “People shied away from throwing against him earlier in the year, which brought Peyton’s younger brother, Eli, to light. He plays opposite of Ryan. A lot of people stayed away from Ryan because of his coverage skills.” – Mike Gallegos, Denton Guyer recruiting coordinator
