Bennett dominated hitters this spring, averaging nearly two strikeouts per inning, and was part of a deep, hard-throwing pitching staff that helped lead Buford High to a state championship. Bennett has good arm strength and throws his fastball 88-94 mph. He pairs it with a good breaking ball and isn't afraid to come right after hitters. But his professional potential is limited because he's listed at just 5-foot-9, 160 pounds, and has an effortful delivery, the combination of which means he's likely to end up as a reliever at the next level. Bennett is committed to West Virginia.
