Georgia Bulldogs star linebacker Nakobe Dean is one of the smartest players in all of college football. Dean accidentally put on an Alabama Crimson Tide hat in the celebratory moments after Georgia football won the national championship against Alabama.

Dean solved his hat problem very quickly. The 2021 Butkus Award winner, first-team All-America linebacker and AFCA Good Works team captain now have a big decision to make for the NFL draft.
Dean is majoring in mechanical engineering, but that didn’t stop him from choosing an Alabama hat after the national championship. These Alabama hats and apparel are now being sent to charities around the world.
Georgia fans are grateful Dean didn’t choose an Alabama hat when recruiting. The Horn Lake, Mississippi native has 168 tackles, 7.5 sacks and 10 pass deflections in his career with Georgia.
