Georgia’s Nakobe Dean Signs STL Sports Group For NIL Representation

Junior University of Georgia linebacker Nakobe Dean has signed with STL Sports Group for Name, Image, and Likeness representation. Agent Safarrah Lawson, who has been featured on SAB, will be representing him.

Dean has been named to the Lott IMPACT Trophy and Bednarik Award watch list for the upcoming season. He was also voted to the SEC’s Preseason All-SEC Third-Team by the media at SEC Media Days. In addition, he is also a nominee for the 2021 All State AFCA Good Works Team.

The former five-star recruit had an excellent season for the Bulldogs last year as he racked up a team-leading 71 tackles and 1.5 sacks and was named a Semifinalist for the Butkus Award, which recognizes the nation’s best linebacker.

If Dean follows up with another stellar season, he could declare for the NFL Draft and be one of the first linebackers taken.
