On Saturday, the Arkansas Razorbacks got a commitment from 3-star defensive lineman Daytrieon Dean.
The 6’2.5, 260-pounder attends Northside High School in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
“Arkansas has always been that school for me that I grew up to watch and play (for), living in Arkansas, “ Dean told Otis Kirk of 24/7 Sports.
Dean was impressed with job done by two assistant coaches, tight ends coach Barry Lunney Jr. and defensive line coach Rory Segrest.
“Coach Lunney recruited me hard,” Dean said. “Coach Segrest keeps it straight-forward. He has NFL coaching experience and that caught my eye when they hired him.”
Dean projects as either a defensive tackle or a strong side defensive end and is projected as a defensive tackle by 24/7 Sports. According to their composite rankings, he is ranked as the 23rd best defensive tackle prospect, the sixth best overall prospect in the state of Arkansas and the 395th best overall prospect in the class of 2015.
Dean chose Arkansas over offers from the Arkansas State Red Wolves and Ole Miss Rebels, among others.
