Deadrin Senat, a defensive tackle prospect from Immokalee (Fla.) High School who had committed to Florida State in early February, has opened up his recruitment and decommitted from the Seminoles according to a report from Woody Womack of the Naples Daily News.
The 6'0", 305 pound Senat is rated three stars by some services and four by others. He is one of the better defensive tackle recruits in the state of Florida. This seems to be a case of a kid pulling the trigger too early. Here are some quotes from the story:
"Integrity is important to Deadrin," Immokalee coach Jerrod Ackley said Saturday. "We've had a lot of coaches come through and a lot more coming, and there a lot more people interested in him than he realized."
"He just wants to make sure he can take his five recruiting visits," Ackley said. "He'll still take the visit to Florida State, too. It's just such a long process from now until February, and I'm happy that he's being honest with them."
His coach goes on to say that FSU is probably still the favorite.
By giving FSU plenty of notice that he is going to look around, Senat is doing the right thing here. If only all prospects could be so honest in letting the coaching staff know where they stand.
