ESPN SAYS
"Bennett comes across as a defensive lineman with a good motor and he is going to hustle around and battle to get the football."

MAXPREPS SAYS
"Not yet a standout but certainly shows the skills to make it in Division I ball. He receives a lot of attention from offensive linemen, is an effective bull rusher who can push the pocket, and shows decent closing speed."

SCOUT SAYS
"A high motor interior lineman, Bennett has good size and a quick first step, but what makes him stand out on the field is his work ethic. He is an every down, play to the whistle interior lineman that fights in the trenches."

OTHER
Brother, Bryon Bennett, plays defensive tackle at Mississippi.
