Getting good news from Dr. James Andrews that he could possibly be back on the field next fall, Dean and his high school coaches from Cocoa started looking for a future home for the 6-1, 195 defensive back and Auburn is expected to be the place. Already with a strong bond with Coach Travaris Robinson and with the Tigers looking for defensive backs, Auburn was a natural fit.
“God keeps blessing me and for that I’m thankful!” Dean tweeted on Friday morning. “I will be attending and playing football at Auburn University! I’m a tiger once again.”
Having already enrolled at Ohio State it’s not expected that Dean would be cleared to play in 2015, but once he is cleared medically he should be able to practice and be ready to go in preparation for his redshirt freshman season in 2016.
