DL Deadrin Senat feels at home at FSU

7/18/2012

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Four-star defensive lineman Deadrin Senat (Immokalee, Fla./Immokalee) was one of the top defensive line prospects at the Jimbo Fisher Camp on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-1, 311-pound tackle prospects has more than 25 offers, but said he was close to making a decision recently.

"I was about to commit to USF, but I want to keep my options open," Senat said. "So I'm going to sit here and think about it. I've been trying to find some pros and cons about the schools that I like and I'm back at Florida State again trying to find some pros and cons again and to show them that I'm really interested. I'm trying to get down to my top five and break it down from there."

Senate, who has offers from USF, FSU, Miami, Nebraska, Ole Miss, USC and North Carolina, says he feels comfortable with the Florida State program.

"It feels like home here," Senat said. "It's not just that, it's the atmosphere here. It's just so real and the players are cool and everything. They play like one."

As for future summer plans, Senat says he is unsure if he will take any other visits, but said he would like to make it back to Tallahassee again.

"I've been trying to come to Florida State a lot, just to check them out and say, 'What's up,' to the coach," he said. "We are real close. I also might be going to USF in a couple weeks."

Ranked as the No. 30 defensive tackle in the country, Senat says his college decision will come down to playing time.

"I want to play," he said. "I just want to play and Florida State is taking five D-linemen, and I'm just looking to play."
