Five-star linebacker Nakobe Dean is the latest elite prospect off the board on National Signing Day. Dean revealed his commitment moments ago.

Dean is heading to Georgia. The Horn Lake (Miss.) product chose the Bulldogs over Ole Miss, Alabama, LSU and others.

He announced the news during ESPNU's National Signing Day special.

Dean is the No. 1 inside linebacker in the 2019 class, and the 14th-ranked player overall according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

His teammate, four-star defensive back Raydarius Jones, committed to LSU today, so the two will be seeing each other on the field in the future.

National Signing Day is rolling along, and there are a few more major recruits left to announce.
