Seven offers and counting for Itawamaba WR

Itawamaba WR Jarvis Bentley (6-5, 200) has seen his stock start to climb over the past couple of months and over the weekend he received good news when two new schools joined the fray with offers...

"Missouri and Western Kentucky have offered me," Bentley said via text early on Monday.

In addition those two schools, Bentley also has offers from Kentucky, Troy, South Alabama, Southern Miss and North Texas and he's been hearing a lot from schools in the SEC and Big 12.

As a redshirt freshman last season, Bentley hauled in 37 receptions for 297 yards and a score.

"I want to improve in everything," Bentley said. "I'm working on my strength, my speed, my routes, my hands and everything else that will help me become a better player and allow me to help my team win a state championship."

Bentley enjoyed a solid prep career at Carver (Columbus, Ga.) High School and signed with the University of Massachusetts, but things didn't work out and he wanted to get a fresh start, so he chose the Indians.

"After I spent a year (at UMASS), I just felt like I needed to give playing at the highest level another chance, so I came here to Itawamba," Bentley admitted. "We have good coaches here and we play against some of the best competition in the country every week, so I think it's getting me ready for what I want to ultimately do and that's play BCS ball."

Bentley is on pace to graduate in December and he will have two years to play two following the 2013 football season.
