5-foot-9, 155-pound New Orleans Edna Karr Magnet School wide receiver Jarrell Bennett had a feeling Arizona was the place for him and now it is official. Read on to see why he chose Arizona, what he sees his role being, and more.

5-foot-9, 155-pound New Orleans Edna Karr Magnet School wide receiver Jarrell Bennett had a feeling Arizona was the place for him.

On Thursday night, he made it official as he gave his recruiting coach the call that would make him another part of Arizona's 2012 recruiting class.

"I committed on Thursday night over the phone to Coach Garrett Chachere," Bennett said. "When I told him he told me he was very excited because I was the highest recruit on his board right now."

Bennett wanted to make sure that Arizona was the right place for him and says he has known it for a while, as he received a visit from Chachere that made everything clear for him.

"I knew I wanted to go to Arizona when Coach came down and showed me video of Arizona's receivers and I knew it would be a place I would like to be," Bennett said. "I talked it over with my family and we talked about the receivers that were committed and I felt that I would have a pretty good shot at playing and it felt like home."

In addition, Arizona fit the criteria that Bennett was looking for and it became apparent as he went through the process.

"When I talked to Coach Chachere we got along well and I wanted to be away from home and then I like their style of offense," Bennett said. "They throw the ball and spread it around and use a lot of different receivers and they are recruiting me to contribute."

As for what Arizona is getting, it is no secret that Bennett's biggest attribute is his speed.

"I would say my speed is my biggest strength and I have good hands and can get in the open field and do well with it," Bennett said.

While some may continue on with their recruitments after making a decision, Bennett says that is not the case with his commitment.

"As of now I am done with recruiting," he said. "My second school was TCU but I think Arizona was the best fit for me, so I am done with recruiting. Hopefully I will be able to take my official visit for the Oregon game."
