Dean Has Offers Starting To Come In
One glance at Green Run (Va.) High School's 3-4 record and one might get the impression that this is not a very good football team. However, led by junior defensive tackle/left guard David Dean, the Stallions are only giving up just over 14 points per game, including a two-game stretch where they only gave up three points. "[The season]'s pretty good," Dean said. "We had some bumps, but we're fixing them up. We had a slow start; we've just got to learn how to finish. We're going to make plays and try to win." Dean, who is 6'2" and weighs 270 pounds, is a top defensive tackle prospect in the 2011 recruiting class. Dean points to his hands and his ability to pass rush as his best traits on defense. Recruiting has started to pick up for the junior, who already has an offer. "I've been getting a lot of feels," he said. "I have one offer, from Louisville. They're a good college, I would like to go see their campus and stuff. I haven't been down there yet. I just visited Duke last weekend. I really liked the campus; they've got a nice team and cool coaches and stuff." Dean said academics are the most important attribute in a school, with playing time also having a vital role. He has also taken an unofficial tour of Maryland and liked what he saw. "Yeah, I went there," he said. "And the coaches are real cool. I toured around the campus with a couple of coaches and went to one of their scrimmages." At the Baltimore Combine this year, Dean ran a 5.47 40-yard dash, an impressive time for a lineman. He said Green Run's goal this year is to make the playoffs, and with him guiding both lines, the possibility is looking better and better for the Stallions.
