Benjamin's mom, Vicki, confirmed that her son committed to play for Jay Wright on Saturday. "Today was the verbal," Vicki Benjamin said.
"He just weighed his options and it didn't make sense to go too far from home. He just decided that he was going to go ahead and do this."
Last week, Benjamin pulled double-duty at the ABCD Camp and he also played for Riverside Church at the Peach Jam.
The Mount Vernon senior is noted for his shooting touch. He's not just a 3-point shooter either. Benjamin, in our opinion, has one of the better mid-range games we've seen this summer.
He's the first player to commit to Villanova in the Class of 2004.
