4-star running back Kirby Bennett really likes the Ducks

Kirby Bennett, a 4-star running back out of Bishop Gorman HS, Las Vegas, Nev., has just transferred to Bishop Gorman but one thing remains the same -- his interest in Oregon having been a fan of the Ducks since the sixth grade. We spoke to Bennett and here is what he has to say about the Ducks and why he is so interested!

Hello Kirby, congrats on the Duck offer!

KB Thank you!

Which coach(s) have you been talking with at Oregon? Who offered you?

KB: Coach Pimpleton, Running back coach.

How interested in the Ducks are you? Do you think they will get one of your official visits?

KB: Very interested, will for sure be a top school for me.

You moved from Texas to Bishop this year? How has the transition gone so far?

KB:  It's great, I'm really enjoying it. Bishop Gorman is really preparing me in the classroom and on the field for college.

I have talked with some of your teammates Dorrien Thompson-Robinson, Brevin Jordan and Jacob Isaia, how have these guys been as far as helping you get settled in?

KB: They've brought me in like I was family, beyond blessed to be in the situation I'm in.

How long have you been in Las Vegas?

KB: About a month now.


Do you have any spring/summer camps or visits set up?

KB: Only camps I will be doing is The Opening and 5-Star Challenge if I'm blessed to go; but visits, not sure yet. Will for sure go visit Oregon, USC, Auburn, and UCLA as of right now.

So, what is it about the Ducks that has caught your interest? New staff or have you been a fan for a while?

KB: Been a fan for a while, ever since sixth grade.

Was there a player(s) you rooted for?

KB: No sir lol, the uniforms, and the cheerleader coach that went viral on twitter caught my attention

Well that’s funny, not sure who that can be, only imagine? What type of conversation have you had with Coach Pimpleton? What’s is he like?

KB: Just life stuff, school, not to focused on football, that will take care of itself.

Ducks Cheerleader Coach? Is this the picture?

 KB: Yes, that is the one LOL.

I have never had any recruits mention the Cheer leading Coach as a reason for interest, that is really funny! And at sixth grade! Thank you for the update Kirby!
