Dean originally committed to Utah on July 27, but decommitted from the Utes. He took an official visit to North Texas this past weekend. Shorter told ETSN.fm on Monday evening that the Hogs coaching staff wants Dean to visit the Fayetteville, Ark., campus before National Signing Day, which is Feb. 6.

Playing quarterback and defensive back, Dean led Newton to a 13-1 record in 2012, which ended in a Class 2A Division I state semifinal loss to eventual state champion Cameron Yoe.

Dean accounted for more than 1,000 yards each rushing and passing. He completed 49 of 97 passes for 1,062 yards, 11 touchdowns, and no interceptions and ran 88 times for 1,014 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Defensively, Dean had 34 tackles, four interceptions, one forced fumble, and one kick block.

Dean is No. 10 on the most recent ETSN 25 recruiting rankings.
