Derek Bermudez is a 6’2, 180lb DB from Sandalwood High in Jacksonville, Florida. Bermudez is very versatile who is able to play multiple positions in the defensive backfield. Ideally, I like him at the boundary corner spot where he can just take his guy out of the play as he does multiple times in his film. From pressing at the line, to coming up and stopping the run, He is very physical in all parts of his game. He has some “Wow” hits that you would think a linebacker made. Bermudez also shows he can play safety and even some nickel on his tape. This DB is one of the most versatile players in the state!
The talented Bermudez currently holds offers from Cincinnati and FAU. Expect for Bermudez’ recruitment to start taking off heading into the summer, after the evaluation period.
