5-Star Linebacker Picks Georgia


Georgia’s No. 2 ranked class just got even better, securing a commitment from another five-star.

Nakobe Dean, an inside linebacker from Horn Lake, Mississippi, announced on Wednesday that he will be spending his collegiate years at the University of Georgia.

Dean ranks as the nation’s 14th overall player, top ranked inside linebacker and top player in the state of Mississippi.

Dean, who visited Athens in November, chose the Bulldogs over Ole Miss, LSU and Alabama.

Some of his strengths include:

  • Fast, physical, sideline-to-sideline tackler
  • Explosive player with a nose for the football
  • Fluid runner
  • Delivers what Kirby Smart likes to call “knock-back-tackles,” not allowing the ball carrier to gain any yards after contact
