Bulls land another DT

Three-star defensive tackle Deadrin Senat committed to South Florida last night. This Immokalee standout was at one time headed to Florida State.

South Florida continues their impressive recruiting run under new head coach Willie Taggart. His latest pledge is from one of the state's most coveted defensive tackles in Deadrin Senat (Immokalee, Fla.).

"Deadrin is an extremely athletic for a player his size," said Jerrod Ackley, Immokalee's former head coach. "He has developed into a weight room warrior. He has unreal strength, top level strength. At the All-American combine last year he had the most bench pressed reps. He really has a great work ethic and I don't think the kid ever missed a practice or weight training session. He has also done a very good job in the classroom, getting better and better with each semester, especially after he realized he was developing into a college football prospect.

"As a player, he stuffs the run and is not a bad pass rusher."

Senat, 6-foot-1 and 310-pounds, was at one time committed to Florida State but quickly backed off that commitment. Now, he's decided to play very close to home.

"I know I haven't been around him that much the last month but I know playing close to home was important to him. He has family in Tampa and wanted to stay as close to his dad as possible. Plus, he believes he can go there and make an impact."

Senat is the fourth defensive line commitment for Taggart and the Bulls over the last two weeks. They have also landed defensive tackle Derrick Calloway (Bradenton Manatee) and defensive ends Eric Mayes (Sarasota Booker) and Mike Love (Clearwater Countryside).
