Bennett Makes His College Choice

A basketball recruiting report is featured on seven-footer Jason Bennett.

Jacksonville, Fla.--The nation's top uncommitted center prospect, who narrowed his choices to Auburn and Kansas State, announced Wednesday that he will play his college basketball at Kansas State.

Jason Bennett, a 7-2, 255-pound senior who helped Arlington Country Day School to the Class 2A state championship in Florida, also considered offers from Alabama, Michigan, Clemson and others.

He had originally planned to attend the University of Cincinnati, but changed plans when that college fired head coach Bob Huggins, who was hired in March by Kansas State.

"He blocked eight shots a game for us and averaged 13 rebounds and he is going to get better and better," Morgan says. "He is a future pro player."

Morgan adds that, in his opinion, Bennett was the best defensive high school senior in the country. He notes that the big man is a legitimate seven-foot-two barefooted and should play in college as a 300-pounder while keeping the ability to run the court well, which is one of the big man's assets.

Bennett took an official visit to Auburn in March and visited Kansas State last week.
