Robinson flips from Clemson to Florida

Demarcus Robinson

For the second time this week, Florida has convinced a commitment to a Palmetto State school to switch to come to the Sunshine State. Clemson commitment Demarcus Robinson of Ft. Valley, GA announced today he is now committed to Florida. Robinson committed to Clemson back in July but a recent visit to Florida started to turn things in the Gators’ direction. Sunday the Gators picked up a commitment from then USC commitment LB Matt Rolin.

Two Clemson commitments have picked up offers from other schools and are giving the new schools some consideration.  2013 commitment Ryan Jenkins was offered by Tennessee and 2014 commitment Dylan Sumner-Gardner was offered by Auburn and new secondary coach Charlie Harbison.

LB Yannick Ngakoue of Washington, DC will make an official visit to USC in January his coach confirmed Tuesday night. Ngakoue is a former Maryland commitment but he decommitted in October. He continues to consider the Terps along with Tennessee, Miami and West Virginia. USC is recruiting Ngakoue as an inside linebacker. He may wait until the Under Armour Game to announce a decision.

USC recruiter Lorenzo Ward checked in on junior DE Bryson Allen-Williams Monday. “A lot of schools have been stopping by,” Williams said. UCLA, Vanderbilt, North Carolina, Maryland, Washington, Florida and Central Florida have also been thru. Williams has had a top seven, in order, of USC, Florida, UCLA, Southern Cal, Washington, Georgia Tech and Clemson, and he said that has not changed. “There’s not really anyone standing out in the top seven,” he said. “But you know how recruiting is. It can pick up or slow down at any time.” Allen-Williams visited USC and Clemson during the season. He also camped at USC last summer.

DL Deadrin Senat (6-1 311) of Immokalee, FL acknowledged that he has remained in contact with USC and is showing interest in the Gamecocks. He did not want to divulge much more information. “I’ve got one game to go and I don’t really want to talk about recruiting until after that,” said Senat. “I don’t want to speak out of turn.” He did say that he spoke with a USC assistant Monday night. “I’ve been talking to them and even talked to them last night,” he said. “As a matter of fact, I’m going to call them back tonight. They just had a couple of decommits and we’ll see where it goes from here. They want me and I want them.” Senat has not taken any visits and plans to take all five of his official visits following the season. “I think I’m going to visit (USC) but I haven’t set anything up yet,” he said. According to Yahoo!Sports his offers include USC, The Citadel, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, Florida International, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Kentucky, LSU, Miami, Ole Miss, Missouri, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Southern Cal and West Virginia among others. He did not name a leader.
