The prospect of having a 6' 4", 326 pound four-star defensive lineman join his charges probably gives Nebraska defensive line coach John Blake reason to smile, more so than he does already, that is. Currently, the Cornhuskers are sitting pretty for Deas as he reports that the Big Red are co-leaders with the Georgia Bulldogs for his services and it appears that whomever wins his services will have to go through one heck of a dogfight, no pun intended.
Deas has actually lost count of how many offers he's currently up to but names such as the two aforementioned, Auburn, LSU and Tennessee give you an idea of what programs think of him. When it comes to what Charles is looking to improve on most this season, his answer actually relates to off-the-field issues. "I'd really like to get things settled in terms of school," he said. Charles said he wants to work very diligently in the classroom to make sure there are no troubles with academic qualification for him.
Deas' number one infatuation with Nebraska also applies to academics as he mentions that he is impressed with how the Cornhuskers stress their academics. Charles is looking to major in business during his collegiate time and also would like for there to be a solid foundation of academic support in place. Charles also said that Nebraska's tradition in football is a chief reason why Nebraska ranks so highly for him.
