Twitter reacts to Georgia landing 5-star linebacker Nakobe Dean
Georgia missed out on landing a 5-star player it wanted previously on Early Signing Day, but the same didn’t happen with 5-star linebacker Nakobe Dean.
Dean committed to the Bulldogs on Wednesday afternoon.
The Mississippi native is the No. 1 inside linebacker in the 2019 recruiting class based on the 247Sports composite rankings. He is also the No. 14 overall player around the country in the class.
Anytime a program lands a 5-star commitment, it’s huge news, but Dean addresses a need as well. At times, Georgia struggled to stop the run, and that’s because it had to replace departed linebackers from the 2017 SEC Championship team such as Roquan Smith.
With the commitment from Dean, Twitter had plenty to say. Here’s a collection of the best reactions:
Nakobe Dean!!!!!!! 5*********
