"My best attributes are my aggressiveness and attitude.” the 6’3” 275 lbs junior explained to us recently. He high school, Centerville Ohio, is ready to have a big year this coming fall against some Ohio powerhouse teams. “So far i don't have a single highlight. I expect there will be a lot my senior season though with us playing Alter and Saint Ignatius.”
Bennett has made unofficial visits to a couple of schools in the area including Ohio State and Cincinnati. “I've been to OSU's junior day, a UC game, a Ball State game, and an OSU game.” He has very good things to say about the Buckeyes and the Bearcats. “I thought OSU had amazing facilities and there was an amazing atmosphere at OSU's and UC's games.”
“I'm interested in a winning program with great academics.” he reported to us about his goal in selecting a college. “I feel that academics are just as important as football because they would supply me with a career after football is over.”

Notre Dame was one of the more recent offers with Brian Kelley continuing to recruit players from his old recruiting territory near Cincinnati.
