Florida State grabbed an impressive defensive line class on Signing Day and it appears they're hitting the position again in 2013. Immokalee (Fla.) defensive tackle Deadrin Senat isn't afraid of a little competition and is excited to join the next wave of top recruits headed to Tallahassee.
"I actually committed to Florida State at the junior day after getting that offer, but wanted to keep it quiet until after signing day," Senat told Warchant.com. "I felt with FSU I could get playing time and the coaches treat everyone equally. I have a good relationship with FSU defensive line coach Odell Haggins."
The 6-foot-1, 300-pounder also held offers from in-state schools Florida and Miami in addition to others from Georgia and Tennessee. The comfort factor with Florida State however, was what led to his commitment.
"FSU runs the 4-3 defense and I just felt at home there. Our coach is actually an alum of Florida State, so we run a lot of the similar formations that they do," he said. "I'm very familiar with FSU because I attended some games."
Senat finished his junior season with nearly 70 tackles and a sack from his interior line position. He gives the Seminoles four commitments for next year, all but one of whom are in-state players, after the program wound up with CBS Sports' sixth-ranked class when all was said and done with the class of 2012.
