College football’s top defensive transfers for the 2023 season

With the 2023 college football season quickly approaching, there are a lot of familiar faces in new places.

Earlier this offseason, we recapped all of the player movement at the quarterback position and noted the best players at the other offensive positions to switch teams.

Now it’s time to focus on some of the best defensive players to transfer ahead of the 2023 season. The list below is in alphabetical order and players’ former schools are listed in parenthesis.

He should see a lot more playing time at USC in his first season and is in line to post bigger counting stats as a result. He was a five-star recruit in the class of 2022 and the No. 9 overall prospect according to Rivals.

Alexander moves up from the FCS level after three seasons as a starter in the Lions’ secondary. Alexander returned two of his three interceptions for TDs in 2022 after intercepting six passes in the 2021 fall season.

The former five-star recruit in the class of 2020 started every game for the Gamecocks a season ago and had 60 tackles and 3.5 sacks as a sophomore. He played in every game as a freshman as well and should immediately slot in as a starter along the Ducks’ defensive line.

Carter comes to Bloomington after a five-year career with the Broncos that totaled 46 games played. Carter had seven sacks in 2022 as a senior to go along with 68 total tackles and has 12.5 career sacks.

Cobb was all over the field for the Cowboys in 2022. He totaled 96 tackles and 13 tackles for loss along with an interception and a forced fumble. Alexander, Cobb and other reinforcements via the transfer portal are being counted on to bolster a USC defense that fell apart at the end of the 2022…
