Recruiting Update: Martellus Bennett

Alief Taylor TE <b>Martellus Bennett</b> tripped to College Station for an official visit this past weekend and we caught up with him to grab the details…<p>

"It was cool," Martellus Bennett said of his official visit to College Station. "I had fun. I was just chillin'."

Asked if the Aggies moved past the Horns, the 6-7, 240-pound tight end said, "It's about even."

Thoughts on the Maroon/White?

"They're on the rise," Bennett said, "And they're getting better every year."

The 5-star tight end's last official visit has him tripping to Baton Rouge.

"I'm going to LSU next weekend," Bennett said. "Les Miles and Coach Henson recruited me when they were at Oklahoma State, so I know them. And, I want to go to LSU and check it out."

But do they really have a shot?

"Yeah, they have a shot," Bennett said. "Just depends on how my visit goes."

Decision-time frame: "Jan. 31."
