Dean Names His Top Four

Fairfield (Calif.) receiver/cornerback DeLaShaun Dean has double-digit offers, a top four, and a decision to make about his position in college

Fairfield (Calif.) High WR/DB DeLaShaun Dean (6-3, 190) has had a pretty strong spring and summer, and has turned that into double-digit scholarship offers, and he recently named the top four schools in his recruitment.

"My top four right now are Washington, UCLA, Michigan and Nebraska," said Dean.

In addition to his top four, Cal, USC and LSU are also staying in the mix.

Dean said most schools like him as a receiver, but that UCLA and Michigan are two that like him as a cornerback.

"Most of the schools want me as a receiver, but some think I'd be a good big corner who could eventually move to strong safety," Dean said.

Dean attended a team camp at Nevada, Cal, UCLA and USC's 1-Day camps and the Nike Camp at Stanford.

"Each place I went, I thought it went real well. I showed everyone what I could do that I could run and I could catch," Dean said.

Dean said he wouldn't rush making a decision on his college choice.

"Well, I'm planning to take all five of my trips, and at the earliest, I'd decide midway through the season. I'm going to take some trips during the season," said Dean.

His first official trip will be to Nebraska on September 10 and he has one set up with Washington, though the date hasn't been determined.

In the meantime, Dean is getting set for the fall, finishing up summer passing league with Fairfield.

"It gave me some time to get some extra work in, work with the skill positions. I can't wait till we get into pads, I'm looking forward to hitting. I'm going to also get to return both punts and kicks," Dean said.

As a junior, Dean had 25 catches for 750 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Dean has a 3.0 GPA and took the SAT in the Spring.
