Horn Lake (Ms.) native and top ranked inside linebacker in the country for 2019 Nakobe Dean is announcing his commitment on Wednesday during the early signing day festivities.
Dean is a prospect that LSU has recruited thoroughly over the past few months and Ed Orgeron is hoping it pays off with a “Hold That Tiger!” tweet.
Ironically enough, Dean won the Butkus Award for the nation’s top high school linebacker and, if you’re Ed Orgeron, having the collegiate Butkus Award winner on your team has got to help.
It’s rumored that the 5-star linebacker is choosing between:
LSU,Georgia, Alabama and Ole Miss
Prediction: Georgia (by a small margin)
Dean will announce his commitment live on ESPNU around 2-3 p.m. The Tigers also have linebackers Donte Starks and Marcel Brooks committed for 2019.
