6. AJ Leggett, West Georgia
Stats: 3 INT / 106 Return Yards / 1 TD
A transfer from Marshall, Leggett has made an instant impact at the safety position for the Wolves.
Though he does not rank amongst the highest interception totals, he has taken advantage of his opportunities to move the field position. The Miami, Florida native's touchdown came on a 32-yard return in week four, with his other returns coming in at 56 yards and 18 yards.
UWG has struggled this season, but the defensive backfield has already snagged 11 interceptions – just five off last season's total – led by their ball-hawking safety and backfield-mate Marcus Sayles with three apiece.
