Bennett still thinking about Nebraska official

The friendship between Martellus Bennett and Brandon La Fell is well known. The two had planned on taking an official to Nebraska, together, for the last weekend in November.

One of the nation's best tight ends is still on the board for Nebraska. Martellus Bennett is still looking into getting in an official to Nebraska for this coming weekend.

The football season has come and gone for Bennett, but as soon as football had ended he found himself on the hard-court.

"No we lost in the first round of the playoffs. We lost 14-13. We missed two field goals and an extra point. We work on special teams everyday for almost an hour," Bennett said.

"It's basketball season right now though. We already played seven games. We had a tournament. We're 6-1 so far. I am probably averaging 16 points and double-digit in rebounds."

With basketball season in swing, is it going to be possible for Bennett to get in any official visits? "I am going to Miami on December 10. I'm setting one up to Duke for basketball. I have an offer from them."

The possible official visit to Nebraska is just that, 'possible'. He has yet to finalize any plans, but he admits that taking an official to Lincoln is still something that he is interested in doing.

"Yeah, I am supposed to. We have a game this Saturday, but I can talk to the coach and tell him that I am going to miss it. Yeah, I am going to try and call Coach Blake."

Bennett has a brother that is also being recruited, again. This weekend his brother, Michael Bennett, is on an official to Missouri. He wasn't sure is Nebraska was interested in Michael, but was going to ask about both of them coming in possibly for a weekend visit.

According to Martellus, Brandon La Fell is still planning on taking an official to Nebraska this coming weekend. Bennett knew that Brandon and his team just got knocked out of the playoffs this weekend.

"It's killing him too. He had 46 catches for 1,016 yards. He had 8 interceptions too."

The season for Bennett ended up with 46 catches for 489 yards, six touchdowns, and five two point conversions.
