LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - One of the top performing defensive tackles during Saturday's Under Armour Combine was Immokalee (Fla.) junior prospect Deadrin Senat. The 6-foot-1, 311-pounder was an imposing force in the middle who had his way with opposing offensive linemen.
"It was a great opportunity for me," Senat said. "I believe I did my best.
"I just had to turn that switch on," Senat added. "I just had to do my thing and not allow anybody to stop me."
The talented junior racked up 67 tackles and eight sacks. That strong performance on the field has already led to numerous schools showing him early interest.
"My coach handles all of that," Senat said. "I know Tennessee, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Notre Dame, Penn State have all shown interest."
For Senat though, one particular school stands out to him early on.
"I am very interested in Miami," Senat said. "I just love the tradition."
"They have just told me they can't wait for me to come down there and visit them," Senat said.
Senat plans to attend Miami's Junior Day in January. If the Hurricanes were to offer him while he is on campus, he says it would be difficult to not commit on the spot.
Beyond recruiting, Senat is focused on improving for his senior campaign when he and a very talented group at Immokalee are focused on winning a state championship.
"I believe that if we keep our heads straight we are going to make it somewhere," Senat said. "If we play as a team this year we just can't lose any more."
