With this trio of 2015 defensive backs - Southern California could become a no fly zone

From Culver City, to Long Beach, all the way to San Marcos, the Southern California region has three defensive backs in the 2015 class that are capable of making air attacks unsettled.

Two of these guys already have a combined 16 scholarship offers between them. The other one is the tallest out of the group and the cousin to a recent PAC-12 commit

Here's three 2015 DB's to look out for:


* Nicknamed "Scrappy" and also a wide receiver/return man, Norman (photo) exploded on the recruiting trail with his lock down skills. Norman shadowed wide receivers at two tournaments with Passing Down and took Best of the West Most Valuable Player. One of his highlights at the state title tournament in Fullerton last April was slowing up high-octane play maker Joe Mixon. He's a feisty cornerback who can press and shadow receivers all day. His hands and play making ability makes him a near complete cover corner. He'll need to bulk up from his current 5-foot-10, 165-pound frame, but Norman already has seven offers including USC.

* He's nearly 6-foot-2 and 185-pounds, and he's not even a senior yet. Marshall has fluid hips for a tall defender and his size, hands and closing speed makes quarterbacks hesitate to throw his way. Marshall is also a wicked hitter. He plays with a mean streak that defensive coaches should love. With nine scholarship offers already, Marshall is continuing Long Beach Poly's tradition of getting the college recruiting coordinators to check in on the Jackrabbits.

* Holiday is the tallest of the group at 6-foot-3, 190-pounds. He also comes with versatility, since he's also played safety. However, his impressive frame and coverage skills could make colleges want him more as a lock down corner. His long arms makes him extremely effective in swatting away the jump ball or sideline grab. Holiday also shadows a wide receiver like a moving cumulonimbus cloud. He's the cousin to recent Arizona commit Devin Holiday. At 6-foot-3 and with impressive lock down skills, could Dechaun Holiday become the next Richard Sherman of Seattle?
