Love this rep from South Alabama CB Darrell Luter Jr.
Teach tape on how to stay square and play with patience from a catch-man technique.
He has some of the best patience I have seen among defensive backs in this years class.
A mid round prospect that has my attention‼️✅ pic.twitter.com/ID32NTBoC6

👌🏻CB Darrell Luter Jr could be a really nice addition to your roster !
Nice back pedal technique, nice fluid hips, quick feet and can play the ball.
I would like to see him in a zone cover system, I saw him too much in off-man because of his lacks of speed.
Day 3 talent ! pic.twitter.com/BtT7R9FZQp
