One of the Golden State's best players season abruptly ended three weeks ago when three-star athlete prospect DelaShaun Dean (6-3, 184, 4.53) from Fairfield, Calif., went down with an injury. Thankfully his injury hasn't slowed down his recruitment any.
"I have to have surgery on Monday," Dean said. "I tore my ACL. I will start to think about visits after my surgery."
Dean was living up to his reputation as an outstanding two-way player. As a wingback, Dean had eight catches for approximately 240 yards and three receiving touchdowns.

The versatile Dean also had one rushing touchdown and one interception return that he brought back 65 yards for a touchdown.
Dean has offers on the table from UCLA, Oregon, Oregon State, Nebraska, Colorado, Arizona, and Arizona State.
"I received calls from everybody that has offered me since September 1st and couple of schools that haven't offered," Deans said. "USC and LSU also have called."
Dean is very good friends with teammate and ASU commit Jamarr Robinson. Does Robinson's commitment give the Sun Devils the edge?
"In a way, that Jamarr committed to ASU makes me look at them stronger," Dean said. "But I have to look at everything and make sure whatever school I choose is the right place for me."
"I'm also looking at Nebraska, Arizona, Oregon and UCLA," Dean said. "I haven't crossed anyone off my list and I'm still very open."
"I'm going to take all five of my visits," Dean said. "So then, I will hurry up and make my decision."
"Some schools are recruiting me as a wide receiver and like me as a defensive back," Dean said. "I want to play receiver, but that's not set in stone."
