Can NU Expect A Visit From DeLaShaun Dean?

There are a lot of things that make up a valuable addition to the receiving corps and when you have size, height and ability, you'll probably fit in pretty quickly. DeLaShaun Dean is looking to make an impact at a Division 1-A college somewhere across the country and we were able to catch up to him to find out his thoughts on Nebraska as well as answer the question on if he'll be visiting.

DeLaShaun Dean would provide Nebraska with yet another quality wide receiver recruit should he decide to pull the trigger for the Cornhuskers.  The 6' 4" 190-pound prospect out of Farfield, CA has scores of potential which ended up getting him a four-star ranking.  Recently, he picked up offers from Arizona, UCLA, New Mexico, San Diego and Arizona State

He currently boasts 15 offers total including Washington, Washington State, UCLA, Nebraska, Colorado, Colorado State, Oregon, New Mexico State, Sacramento State and Nevada as well as the aforementioned schools.  Dean tied up all loose ends when it came to the summer recruiting trail and is now focusing on his preparations for the coming year.  "I'm just working out and getting ready for the season so right now I'm just working on my ball skills," he said.

Looking at official visits, Dean already has a couple lined up.  "I've got two so far for Nebraska and Washington and maybe Arizona and ASU, but I haven't decided yet," he said.  He will be visiting Washington in August and will be in town for Nebraska's game against Wake Forest.  Does Dean have a favorite picked out?  "No, but I'm just giving everybody a look who's looking at me seriously," he said.

In taking a look at the current relationship between Dean and the Cornhuskers, he reports that things are going rather well.  "Our relationship is pretty solid. They've been showing me a lot of attention and we've been in contact through phone calls from day one.  We've been getting to know each other and they tell me about their school.  They're by far showing me the most interest," he said.  Dean reports that he speaks with Head Coach Bill Callahan along with Safeties Coach and Special Teams Coordinator Bill Busch the most.
