WHAT THEY ARE SAYING

ESPN
“Bennett comes across as a tough and solid offensive lineman who we feel will need to slide to offensive guard at the college level, but with development can effectively contribute at the FBS level. He is a physical player that will work to stay with and try to finish blocks.”

Scout
“The Bears are getting a player that will bring his lunch pail to work every day and give it his all. Bennett will do all of the little things right and is the type of player you can win with. A true grinder.”
