LaMarius Benson, (6'3, 305) is a talented defensive tackle from Eastside HS in Covington, GA. He continues to see a rise in offers as the big time defensive tackle plays a position coveted by college programs.
Quick to the ball and powerful up the middle, Benson is going to see his stock continue to rise over the season and into next year.
"It feels real good seeing those offers come in right now," Benson told GoldenEaglePride.com. "I'm just working out and trying to improve for next season."
Benson already held offers to Maryland, Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Marshall, UCF and South Carolina in addition to the one he just picked up from USM.
"Coach Nicholson texted me and said all the coaches like my film," he said. "They said they wanted to offer me and want me at Southern Miss."
Also, Benson said he hears most from South Carolina, Marshall, UCF, and Georgia State.
He is unsure at this point if he will be attending the Southern Miss Junior Day.
