Marlin Dean trotted out a unique pump fake of sorts in the recruiting world on Thursday.
The 6-foot-6, 255-pound defensive lineman from Elbert County in Northeast Georgia released a top 10 edit on his social media. Well, sort of.
The 3-star recruit ranks as the nation’s No. 25 DT prospect and the No. 408 overall recruit for the 2021 cycle on the 247Sports Composite ratings.
Dean comes to Georgia from the same Elbert County program which sent former 5-star Mecole Hardman Jr. to Athens. Georgia coach Kirby Smart landed a helicopter on the grounds of Elbert County over the last year while flying into Elbertson to visit Dean.
He becomes the third commitment for the 2021 class in Athens.
