Staying home: In-state defender Marlin Dean commits to Georgia
The Georgia Bulldogs landed their 3rd commitment for the class of 2021 Friday morning.
Three-star defensive tackle Marlin Dean (Elberton, Ga.) committed to the Bulldogs over offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, Ole Miss and Mississippi State, among others. The 6-foot-6, 265-pound tackle is ranked as the nation’s No. 25 defensive tackle and the state of Georgia’s No. 33 overall prospect for the class of 2021, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Dean announced his commitment on social media.
“First off, I want to thank God for giving me the ability to make this decision, ” Dean wrote via Twitter. “Secondly, I wanna thank my mom and dad for being behind me through this process. Also wanna thank all the coaches that helped me through this process from camps to visits. With that being said, I will be committing to the University of Georgia.”
Georgia’s recruiting class now consists of 3-star Dean, 5-star QB Brock Vandagriff and 4-star ATH David Daniel, who projects as a defensive back in college. All three of UGA’s commitments are from the Peach State.
