Martellus Bennett, TE, 6-6, 240, 4.7, HOUSTON (TAYLOR HS), TEXAS:
JH: How is your season going?
MB: "It is going good. We are 4-2 and we play big Vince (Oghobasse) (Alief Hastings) tomorrow. I think that is going to be a good game. I am looking forward to playing in it."
JH: How are you doing individually?
MB: "I have 25 catches and three touchdowns, five two-point conversions and 45 pancakes."
JH: You are a great blocker ,and it appears to be something that you really enjoy?
MB: "With my state of mind I feel they are trying to hit me every time, so I go into the game saying that I am going to hit them back. I am not going to let him just hit me and not hit them back."
JH: Did you go to the OU/Texas game?
MB: "No, we had meetings Saturday morning after our game on Friday and I wasn't going to be able to get there on time."
JH: Did you have a chance to watch the game? And if you did, what did you think about the game?
MB: "I thought the defenses played pretty good on both sides. Adrian Peterson looked good in the game. I watched the tight ends in the game."
JH: How is recruiting going?
MB: "I am just taking it step by step and day by day and looking for what is the best for me. I am still considering Miami, Texas, Oklahoma, LSU and Arizona."
JH: What visits have you set from this point?
MB: "I already went to Texas and Oklahoma on official visits. I am supposed to go to Arizona in November (11-26) and Miami (12-10) in December."
JH: How is recruiting stacking up for you at this point?
MB: "It is pretty open for me at this time."
JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?
MB: "I still like Oklahoma. I know that I would have a real good supporting cast supporting me and that appeals to me. I feel they are looking for a tight end that can make plays. I feel if I went there I could go in there and play right away."
JH: Are you going to any other college football games soon?
MB: "I am going to the Texas A&M-Colorado game and I will be going to another UT game soon."
