Gulf Shores Academy forward Justin Benson did just what he said he would. On Saturday, the sweet shooting Top 100 forward made his college decision.

New Mexico Lands Forward

Justin Benson was down to Houston, Kent State and New Mexico State. However, on Saturday he further trimmed his list.

"We went with New Mexico," Benson said. "Me and my mom talked about it and we prayed."

Benson said that he plans on visiting the Lobos the first weekend in November after he takes his SAT this month.

Apparently, the decision was a very difficult one for the Houston Hoops standout. "Me and my mom just liked the school a lot. There's a lot of support there."
