It’s been a good day for Alabama. But the Crimson Tide hasn’t completely dominated the first signing period in the recruiting calendar.
Nakobe Dean, a five-star inside linebacker from Horn Lake, Miss., announced he committed to Georgia over Alabama, Ole Miss and other programs.
Dean is rated the No. 14 prospect in the nation and the top player in the 2019 class at his position, according to 247Sports.com.
If he does sign with the Bulldogs, Dean will enhance a class currently ranked No. 2 in the country behind Alabama.
He would also be the fifth five-star player among Georgia’s latest crop of recruits.
