BREAKING: It’s Miami for Alabaster (Ala.) Thompson Top247 CB Trequon Fegans.

A 6’2” 180lb corner, Fegans is the kind of talent that Miami has been unable to get on the roster over the course of many years. His combination of height, speed, and skill brings a new dimension to the Canes’ CB room, one that has been missing since LaDarius Gunter — the last CB over 6’1” — patrolled the secondary for Miami in 2015.
Fegans has long been a dynamic player on the HSFB level. As a sophomore at Oxford (AL), he started for the eventual State Champions, recording 5 INTs — all of which he returned for touchdowns. He totaled 63 tackles, 15 PBUs, and also had 204 yards and 5 TDs on offense at RB on the year. That’s a pretty incredible season overall, even moreso for a 1st time starter. Fegans played with his brother Antwon Jr. this season, and his brother was a mid-year enrollee for Arkansas State after winning the championship with Oxford.
Fegans raised the bar even more his junior year, being named Alabama’s 6A Region 7 Defensive Player of the Year, along with 1st Team All-American honors from MaxPreps, to boot.
After 2 incredibly productive years in Oxford, Fegans (and his younger brother, a 2025 recruit) transferred to Alabaster (AL) Thompson ahead of the 2021 season.
For Miami, this recruiting win cannot be overstated. Fegans picked Miami over 26 other scholarship offers, and a who’s who of recruiting powers was at the top of the list. Fegans had a named group of finalists of Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, and South Carolina in addition to the Canes. When you go toe to toe with those kind of programs for any player, let alone a local player of the caliber of Fegans, that can only be considered a massive, massive recruiting win.
Here’s an evaluation of Fegans from 247sports Southeast Recruiting Analyst Andrew Ivins:
Looks the part with long, lean frame. Measured over 6-foot-1 the summer before his senior season. A true playmaker at cornerback that uses his plus instincts to create takeaways. Rather experienced in press-man coverage and seems to be the most comfortable at this stage in his development when he can get his hands on a wide receiver near the line of scrimmage. Longer reach helps shrink throwing windows and makes him super competitive in jump-ball situations. Not afraid to make a face-up tackle and will get low when needed. Has doubled as a running back throughout much of his prep career and ripped off his fair share of big gains. Also dangerous in the return game, especially on punts. First made a name for himself as a sophomore when he returned five interceptions for touchdowns and helped his team win a state title playing in one of Alabama’s higher classifications. Followed that up with a strong junior campaign. Comes from a football family with four other brothers that play the game. Tested well as a youngster, but global pandemic has made it difficult to gather new verified data points. Top-end speed, however, doesn’t appear to be an issue given how he closes gaps on tape. Likely will need a year or two to find his bearings, but has what it takes to develop into a multi-year starter at the Power 5 level given impressive wingspan, fluidity and overall feel for the position. Length should eventually have him on the radar of NFL scouts.
Adding Fegans to the 2022 recruiting class gives Miami a new 2nd highest rated prospect in the group. He joins Khaumari Rogers (the highest rated commit of the class), and Chris Graves at CB, along with QB Jacurri Brown, WR Landon Ibieta, and OL Falentha Carswell in this class for Miami. Small in number, yes, but this group is a great foundation for a class that should end up with the quality that Miami needs in this cycle.
