WR Richard Benjamin Profile
The Tampa Technical High School [Fla.] rising senior has set a commitment date for July 3.
"My top five would be UCF, USF, Vandy, Clemson and Florida," he said in a recent interview with CUTigers.
The list is in no particular order. Benjamin shared thoughts on each of the five schools.
Clemson: What I like about Clemson is that it's a school that's away from home, but it reminds me of home. The atmosphere, the weather, the coaches, the offensive scheme, it's just like my high school's. There's a lot of connections with Clemson.
UCF: I really like that it's close to home.
USF: It's close to home. You can go home on Sunday and eat a good meal. I like the coaches and the atmosphere.
Vanderbilt: I really have a good connection with coach [James] Franklin. it's an exceptional bond that we have.
Florida: Growing up, I was a Florida fan.
The No. 128 wide receiver in the class of 2013 also shared his thoughts on the Clemson visit.
"At Clemson, I like the coaches. The offensive scheme fits me. The atmosphere of being in Clemson, it's just like being in Tampa," he said.
Benjamin added, "The weight room and the football field, I love how they come down the hill and touch the rock. The weight room is just stunning. It's a nice weight room."
He's also visited Georgia, Tennessee, Auburn, USF, Vanderbilt and UCF this summer.
As a junior, Benjamin racked up 1,200 all-purpose yards.
