The 2013 Navy football signing class is full of players who can help Navy continue its service academy dominance. In this segment discusses the newly signed Mid defensive backs.

At defensive back, cornerback Kyle Battle was a three year starter from Belton, Texas. The physical Battle had 57 tackles and three interceptions last season including one returned for a touchdown.

Justin Norton is a recruit who played linebacker for Skyline high school in Texas. Norton is 6-2, 205 pounds player who earned first team 9-5A All-District honors. He is projected to play safety in the Mids' scheme.

Abdul Majeed (5-9, 185) is a quick cornerback from The Hun School in New Jersey. Majeed was a very productive player who lacked the top end speed to garner any other BCS offers. Abdul's other offer was from Maine.

Alex Duncan is a 5-10, 185 pound cornerback from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Duncan was named National Underclassmen Combine MVP defensive back before his senior year. Duncan stayed loyal to his commitment to Navy despite late interest from the ACC.
