Interview with Fred Bennett

Inside Carolina interviews speedy WR/CB target from South Carolina. Fred Bennett had offers from Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia Tech.

Inside Carolina talked with Fred Bennett from Manning HS in Manning, SC. Something interesting I learned about Fred is that he has a twin brother Sedrick Bennett. Sedrick is slightly shorter than Frederick (goes my Fred) and a little slower (Fred 4.4 vs. Sedrick 4.5). Fred was a fun guy to interview with some interesting insights into his recruitment.
