Arlington Country Day School in Jacksonville, Fla., easily cruised to a 2A state championship. Now their senior center Jason Bennett can focus on his recruitment. Bennett, 7-foot-2, 240-pounds, is down to three schools and one coach, and he is presently visiting one of those schools.
"Jason is visiting Auburn as we speak," said Arlington Country Day head coach Rex Morgan. "He is also planning to visit Alabama and Michigan. He would like to have a decision by the first of April."
Although he is down to these three schools, there is still more competition out there for the five-star center. Bennett, who was once on the verge of committing to Cincinnati, has consistently made it known that he would like to play for Coach Bob Huggins.
"Those three schools are in there pretty good, but Jason is still interested in seeing where Coach Huggins lands," said Morgan.
Despite struggling through some injuries this year, Bennett averaged 12.5 points, 13.5 rebounds and 8 blocks per game.
Jason Bennett scouting report:
With his defense certainly ahead of his offense, Bennett does run the floor well and is active on the offensive boards. His back to the basket game is still a work in progress. His ability to hold onto rebounds and tough passes is the area of his game that has the biggest room for improvement along with his free throw shooting. His strongest attribute is his shot blocking ability.
