What to watch
DeJean put up impressive numbers last season in leading OABCIG to the Class 2A state football championship.
He led the state with 5,062 all-purpose yards, 4,838 offensive yards, and 396 pass attempts, while tying for the state lead with 70 touchdowns. He was second in the state with 236 pass completions.
On the defensive side, DeJean had 34 tackles last season, including 24 solos. He had five interceptions, returning two for touchdowns. On special teams, he averaged 30 yards on three kickoff returns, and had two punt returns for touchdowns.
His athleticism and versatility makes him a good pick-up for the Hawkeyes in this class.
