Notre Dame defensive coordinator Mike Elko is just a few days into the job and he is wasting no time on the recruiting trail. 2018 Dutchtown (Ga.) safety Trey Dean picked up an offer from the Notre Dame on Monday via a conversation he had with Elko.

“Coach Elko, the new defensive coordinator, offered me today,” Dean told Irish Sports Daily. “I had told him the situation I was in, as Notre Dame was supposed to offer me before the new staff came in. He said he had been watching my film and he told me he would get back with me after he asked for my grades.

“He told the Director of Player Personnel about me and they decided to go ahead and pull the trigger.”

The Irish join the likes for Duke, Florida, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Minnesota, Oregon State, UCLA and Vanderbilt, but the Notre Dame offer is something he is taking serious.

“It means a lot,” stated Dean. “The academic side is big for me, but they are good on the field too.

“Right now, I would say Florida is recruiting me the hardest,” explained Dean. “Florida was my first offer and its always great atmosphere down there. They always treat me well down there.”

The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder is a star for his secondary and feels that could translate to many positions at the next level.

“I am a physical and finesse player,” Dean said.  “I have great ball skills and I can hit well. I also play cornerback too. I think Notre Dame offered me at safety, but I can play any defensive back position on the field.”

Dean was actually going to visit Notre Dame this fall, but travel plans fell through, however, expect the three-star prospect on campus this spring.

“I am definitely going to get up to Notre Dame,” said Dean. “I am definitely going to get my flight booked for Notre Dame.”

The Georgia native isn’t close to making a decision at this time, but he’s paying close attention to a few things when he goes on his visits.

“I am looking at academics first,” said Dean. “Second would be the relationship I have with the coaches and third is if the schemes fit me. Can I play as a freshman? I am looking to get playing time as a freshman and if the scheme really fits my game.”
