Dawg Post Wednesday Recruiting Update:

Dawg Post takes a look at 2018 three-star safety Trey Dean from Duchtown (GA)

More and more prospects have emerged this spring in the 2018 class, and Dutchtown (GA) safety Trey Dean is definitely one of them. The 6-foot-2 Dean has good size for defensive back, and has a lean look where he could still add some solid weight. Florida and Georgia Tech have offered, and Dean said the Georgia Bulldogs are starting to show strong interest.

"They (Georgia) are recruiting me hard right now." Dean said. "The coaches like my footwork, size, and my athleticism. They are definitely coming to my games this year and that they will be in touch again soon. I really like Georgia and they are high on my list."

Dean said the coaches he hears from at Georgia are defensive coordinator Mel Tucker and defensive line coach Tracy Rocker. "I went to one of their camps and worked out in front of the coaches." Dean said. "They said they liked my speed and athleticism."

Dean spent the day in Athens and enjoyed the area and everything Athens had to offer.

"I loved the campus." Dean said. "I liked the facilities, the weight room, and all of the offices."

So what is most important to Dean when it comes to the recruiting process?

"Academics." Dean said. "I'm looking for a great coaching staff and a school that fits me as a person and a student on and off the football field."

Dean plans to visit Georgia again, but admits that's the recruiting process is wide open. On film, Dean makes a ton of plays and shows the ability to make the crucial tackle in the open field.  He was impressive last December during the Elite Junior Classic, and should have a big junior season this upcoming fall.
