Texas A&M football commit Martellus Bennett took part in former NBA coach John Lucas' pre-draft workout Tuesday on the campus of Rice University in Houston.
After the camp, the Alief, Texas, product shed some light on a few items of interest for Aggies fans.
Bennett, who declared for the NBA draft last week, told Rivals.com that he would not turn pro if he wasn't sure he was going to be drafted in the first round. Prospects have until June 21 to withdraw their names from consideration for the draft and still maintain their college eligibility.
But that doesn't mean that he will indeed be suiting up for Dennis Franchione or Billy Gillespie during the 2005-06 school year. It may be that just one of those coaches gets the benefit of his tremendous talent.
After stating previously that he would like to play both football and basketball at Texas A&M, Bennett discussed the possibility of just playing one sport Tuesday night.
"I've got to focus on something," Bennett said. "I'm not sure (what sport I will be playing)."
The nation's top-ranked tight end prospect and five star football recruit, Bennett signed with the Aggies over scholarship offers from Texas and LSU. His brother, Michael Bennett, Jr., transferred into the Aggies football program from Louisiana Tech.
The 6-foot-7, 233-pound Bennett showed solid athleticism and strength during five-on-five drills Tuesday evening.
