Less than a week after receiving an in-home visit and scholarship offer from Arkansas, Newton’s D.J. Dean committed to the Razorbacks during an official visit this weekend.

Dean announced his commitment on Twitter (first reported here). The 5-foot-11, 180-pounder started at quarterback and defensive back for Newton, which he helped to a 13-1 record and Class 2A Division I state semifinal appearance in 2012.

Dean ran for more than 1,000 yards and threw for more than 1,000 yards, totaling 31 touchdowns. Defensively, he had 34 tackles and four interceptions.

Arkansas will likely play Dean in the secondary.

Dean chose the Hogs over Division I FBS offers from Arkansas State, Baylor, Illinois, SMU, Tulane, Utah, and Washington State. He also has offers from McNeese State, Stephen F. Austin State, and Texas State.

Dean is No. 10 on the latest ETSN 25 recruiting rankings for the 2012 class.
