Benjamin: 'No one is leading'

Glades Central HS (FL) WR Travis Benjamin talked to CanesTime.com with the latest in his recruitment.

"We have another game this week in ‘States left," Travis Benjamin said. "The game plan is good and we'll be straight .Everything is going good right now."

Benjamin, a 5-foot-11, 160 pound wide receiver is starting to think about his options for visits.

"No homes, yet. None are set up at all. No officials other than Auburn already that was my only official."

Benjamin shares his thoughts about the visit to Auburn and his experience during the Iron Bowl game versus Alabama.

"It was a real nice experience. My host was (Walter McFadden). I had food, we ate, saw some stuff about academics and saw the Tiger Walk. That was cool. The Tiger Walk was exciting. It had the players walk through the whole crowd, it was real nice."

"The experience was real live. The game was real close, I didn't know who was going to win. They beat Alabama, and their quarterback (Brandon) Cox played big."

Benjamin also reports he hasn't had an in-home visit in some time.

"I am gonna make some visits later on, I don't know when they are going to be though."

"There aren't any schools that are recruiting me hard right now," Benjamin said. "But South Carolina, West Virginia, Auburn, Tennessee, LSU, Miami, and Ole Miss talking to me."

Benjamin also talked a bit about the recent coaching change at Ole Miss. "I used to talk to Coach O a lot," Benjamin said. "But once he got fired I've only talked to one of the coaches. One called and said they'll keep me in there."

Benjamin now, after being high on the University of Miami at the beginning of the season says all of the teams are now even.

"Nobody is in the lead. They are pretty much the same right now."

Benjamin says he "grades are good." He reports a 2.67 GPA and scored a 14 twice on the ACT.
