Dean signs with Louisiana State

Dean, who also was a three-year starter on the Bulldog football team, hasn’t completely ruled out trying to play college football.

“I’m just going to see if I get any offers for football this year,” he said. “But if not, oh well, I’m going to LSU.”

Even if he’s drafted in June’s Major League Baseball draft Dean said he will still likely end up at Louisiana State saying it would take life-changing money for him to forgo his college career.

Dean will report to LSU in June. In the mean time he has his senior baseball season to look forward to with his college decision out of the way.

“It’s going to be a lot easier for me to focus on baseball,” he said. “We definitely are going to compete for the district championship.”

As far as Gillis is concerned whatever the challenge facing Dean either on the high school diamond or at LSU, he’ll be ready for the challenge

“It’s (developing as a baseball player) a constant process,” Gillis said. “But his work ethic is so good that he is going to be up for the task.
