The Pierce County High School senior had scholarship offers from Columbia University, Georgia Southern, Mercer, and Middle Tennesee State but chose instead to accept a preferred walk-on offer from Georgia. Although 247 Sports rates Bennett a 3-star prospect and the 72nd best Pro-Style quarterback for 2017, his opponents may disagree somewhat. The ‘Mail Man’ earned his nickname. According to MaxPreps, he threw for 6,648 yards and 58 touchdowns to 16 interceptions completing 63.3 % of his passes over his junior and senior seasons with the Bears. He also rushed for 1,073 yards on the ground, adding 17 touchdowns and averaging 7.3 yards per carry.
Bennett not only flashes his athletic ability on the football field, but is a triple threat, also baseball and basketball for Pierce County High School.
