Martellus Bennett Follow Up...

With possible commitment information leaking from one source that <b>Martellus Bennett</b> may very well have ended the suspense after his weekend official visit to Texas A&M, we grabbed a quick update with him asking him to specifically address that…

"I haven't committed to anybody," Martellus Bennett told Scout.com. "But I think I know why people are saying that. When I was at A&M, I was trying to get some T.V. time. So, I told Coach Fran to let me whisper in his ear so the T.V. cameras would focus on us and he was smiling when I was whispering. I was just messin' with them, trying to get some T.V. time. I'll let everyone know where I'm going this Monday, though."

Essentially, Bennett denied any commitment this past weekend to anybody, but did say, "I really like A&M. They look good. And, I think I could go up there and start right away."

A short pause, Bennett quickly added, "I think I could go to UT and LSU and start there also."

Told our report on Inside Texas about his rumored commitment to the Aggies this past weekend would probably have another media outlet calling him for a follow up just as we were doing, Bennett laughed and said, "Yeah, I know. And, I'm going to LSU this Friday," hinting that more media coverage was on the horizon as well and that he was looking forward to it.

While our follow up produced exactly what we expected, which was Bennett to hold off on confirming a commitment to anyone, even if has in fact already pulled the trigger, we wanted to check in with him anyway. Kid is a riot to talk to and one of the all-time great HS-personalities...

But for Inside Texas Members who want access to the premium only segment we ran on the 5-star tight end before doing this follow up report, with a simple click of the mouse, we take you there…
