Four-star defensive back Jeffery Carter and three-star wide receiver Monterren Parks have transferred out of Aledo, Bearcats head coach Steve Wood told the Star-Telegram.

Carter is headed to Mansfield Legacy while Parks will play for Fort Worth All Saints.

Carter is one of the top cornerbacks in the country who happened to also play receiver for Aledo. He's ranked No. 95 overall and No. 12 in Texas by 247Sports.com. He recorded 42 tackles, five deflections, three interceptions, 450 receiving yards and six touchdowns in two years.

He's announced a top 4 of Alabama, Texas, Oklahoma and Texas A&M.

Carter joins an already impressive defensive unit at Legacy, which includes top prospects Jalen Catalon, Taurean Carter and Enoch Jackson. The Broncos are coming off their first trip to the state semifinals where they lost to Aledo.

Parks, referred to as "Money," recorded 28 catches for 405 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He's the No. 75 receiver in the country and No. 55 in the state.

He holds eight offers from Texas Tech, Baylor, Utah, Kansas State, SMU, Kansas, Illinois and Houston. He's projected to commit with the Red Raiders, per 247Sports.

Aledo finished state runner-up last season and won a state title in 2016.
