Benson knows Miles' history

The nation's No. 29 point guard recently visited Nebraska.

Corona Del Sol high school (AZ) point guard Casey Benson doesn't have an exact date he would like to commit by, but he does know one thing – it will be this fall and during the early signing period.

Benson, who visited Nebraska in early June, is the nation's No. 29 point guard and a three-star prospect according to FOX Sports NEXT.

"I'm always working to get better. It's an honor to be recognized in that way, but it's all about getting better for me," said Benson. "I'm working on different weaknesses with my game. I really have never paid attention to rankings and stuff like that. I have always just been focused on getting better and helping my team win.

"My trip to Nebraska was a good visit. We got the tours around campus, saw the new arena that was being built, and toured the practice facility and training complex. It was a nice place."

The 2014 prospect has a long list of offers and many schools are still in the running for his services. In a previous article with the network a week ago, he reported Oregon, Creighton, Stanford, St. Mary's, Nebraska, New Mexico, and Boise State were the schools recruiting him the hardest at this point.

"Nebraska sees me as a guy who can come in and be a big part of their team as a point guard. They feel that I really fit their style of play," said Benson, who knows he could be part of something special by getting Nebraska to their first NCAA tournament. "I saw what Coach Miles did at Colorado State, they turned around that program and did a wonderful job there. He's won every where he's been. So I sort of know the type of guys they are and what they are about. The tradition at Nebraska really doesn't bother me, because I know what I would be getting into.

"I don't have a favorite list or anything. I'm still interested in Nebraska and looking at them. They are a school I could see myself out...I'm just looking for the right fit overall. The coaching staff and the style of play I think are the most important things to me."
