He committed to Purdue over Miami (OH), Central Michigan and Cincinnati.

Dean could play multiple different positions at Purdue under newly-hired HC Ryan Walters. He is, however, rated as the No. 132 overall edge rusher in the class and the No. 4 player out of West Virginia, per 247Sports’ composite rankings.
Purdue currently holds a commitment from 1 other true edge rusher in the 2023 cycle, 3-star Will Heldt out of Carmel, Indiana.
