Fred Bennett (6'2,181,4.4) is currently ranked as the #34 cornerback in the country and now the race is starting to heat up to see who can win this recruiting war.
On the season, Bennett had 35 tackles with 6 interceptions defensively, along with 52 catches for 1154 yards and 22 touchdowns at his wide receiver position for Manning High School. Noted as a big, physical player with speed to match, Bennett is listed as a potential cornerback in college, even though he was primarily used as a strong safety in high school. With his height and body frame, he'll also be able to put on a few more pounds once he gets in the right weight program.
He'll also be representing South Carolina in the Shrine Bowl, where he'll start in the defensive backfield.
"Right now, I can play early at Clemson, and that definitely factors into my decision," says Bennett.
"I also have a couple of guys who I know already know are up there, and thats important. North Carolina and South Carolina are right though too."
Bennett is scheduled to visit Clemson on January 11th, South Carolina on the 18th, and North Carolina on the 25th. Outside of those visits, he probably will not go anywhere else.
As of right now, it seems like Bennett is leaning heavily to staying instate and thats great news if you are a football fan in South Carolina. Lets just hope he looks better in orange, than garnet.
