Dean is a 5-star linebacker and is the No.1 linebacker in the nation. He has an opportunity to go to almost any school in the nation. He will sign during the early signing period and enroll early.
“Enrolling early will give me a good start on the play book and school,” Dean told Touchdown Alabama in September.
Alabama has been recruiting Dean hard along with other elite programs. The Tide’s coaching staff believes that he can come in and make an immediate impact. Saban even assured him of that in June.
“He basically just told me how much they want me and need me,” Dean said. “He also told me how much of an impact I will make on the team and how I will have a chance to play early due to the low depth at linebacker.”
