Alabama is off to an excellent recruiting start, and you should expect the Crimson Tide to continue its success. SEC Country’s Chris Kirschner will answer the Recruiting Question of the Day each weekday. You can ask him your questions on Twitter or on Facebook. Find our previous questions and answers here.
Nakobe Dean, the nation’s No. 1 inside linebacker in the 2019 class from Horn Lake (Miss.) High School, has Alabama as one of his top schools. But there are numerous schools still in the mix for Dean, such as Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Notre Dame and Stanford.
Dean’s recruitment is wide open, according to multiple sources I have spoken with in the past few weeks.
Alabama is one of his top schools out of that group if we follow the visits. He’s been to Alabama, LSU and Ole Miss the most. His brother currently attends Ole Miss, and he’s visited that school more than Bama and LSU. However, Dean is adamant that it won’t play any factor.
Depth charts also will not factor in Dean’s decision. He told SEC Country that he knows he must work to start at whichever school he attends. Inside linebacker is one of the Tide’s biggest needs after signing only one prospect in the 2018 class.
