Georgia offers in-state WR
"It was crazy how it happened," said Michael Bennett. "I was talking with Mark Richt after the camp and he was telling me how I was high on their radar and that an offer could come soon or even during the season." "He told me that he hadn't had the chance to talk with Coach [Tony] Ball yet about the camp, but then Coach [Mike] Bobo came in and Coach Richt stepped out for a bit. When Coach Richt came back, he told me that he talked to Coach Ball and that I have an offer from Georgia." "It all happened in about 30 seconds and it was just a crazy time. I am very excited about the new offer from Georgia." The 6-foot-3, 188 pound wideout out of Alpharetta, Ga. knew he had Georgia's interest and he felt an offer was coming after Coach Ball's comments during the camp. "I think I did pretty good in the first session, but nobody could stop me in the second session." "I was blowing past people, catching everything, getting a lot of reps, and I don't think anyone could guard me then. I think I really showed them what I could do then." "Coach Ball kept telling me that I need to chill out because I kept jumping to the front of the line to get reps and he told me one time that he had seen what he needed to see. I started getting the vibe then that I was going to get an offer." That offer came and Bennett now has 14 offers to look at. He has interest in many schools, but the offer from the Dawgs really stands out right now. "Georgia is number one now for sure," he said without hesitaion when asked for a leader. "I have always liked Georgia, but I still like Florida, Michigan State, and some others too." The big news that came on Saturday could possibly repeat itself on Sunday for Bennett. "I called to let Florida know that Georgia offered me and they told me that they are meeting on Sunday and that they could have some good news for me after that. It has been a crazy day and I am excited about what is happening." Stay tuned to Scout.com for the latest on Bennett.
