Deadrin Senat could commit during Thursday's in-home visit with Steve Spurrier

Steve Spurrier and GA Mangus will be making a trip down to Immokalee, FL for an in-home visit with the three star defensive tackle. Will they secure a verbal commitment from the big defensive tackle?

Deadrin Senat was one of 18 official visitors in Columbia during South Carolina's big recruiting weekend last Friday through Sunday. Going into the the visit, there was some buzz that the 311 pound defensive tackle could commit to the Gamecocks if they were to extend a committable offer. Though South Carolina made it clear that he is a take for them at this point, Deadrin didn't commit. Still, the Gamecocks emerged from the weekend with a sizable lead for the sizable interior lineman.

Senat, the 35th overall defensive tackle in the 2013 class according to 247Sports, still has a visit to North Carolina State scheduled for this upcoming weekend and is also considering South Florida, but he told Phil Kornblut that it's possible he'll commit during a Thursday in-home visit with GA Mangus and Steve Spurrier.

If he does go ahead and pledge to USC, he would be the 21st commit for the 2013 class, leaving the Gamecocks with room to take two more this cycle, likely two among Yannick Ngakoue, Skai Moore, and Jonathan Walton.

GoUpstate.com reported on Wednesday that one of Ngakoue's high school coaches does not believe that South Carolina leads for the Maryland linebacker's services coming out of last weekend's official visit. With National Signing Day just two weeks away, that would not bode well for the Gamecocks' chances of landing Ngakoue.

However, just moments after that report was published, the four star linebacker issued the following flirtation to South Carolina fans via Twitter:

So where do things ultimately stand with Ngakoue's recruitment? We won't know for sure until National Signing Day, but I would characterize the Gamecocks' chances as 50/50 at best. They appear to be in better position with Walton and Moore but will need to fend off late surges from Auburn and Vanderbilt, respectively. It's not completely out of the question that South Carolina's class might already be full by the time Yannick announces his decision.
