ACC schools evaluating Benjamin

Temple is the only school that has offered Samuel Benjamin to date but the Owls aren't alone in showing interest.

In fact, at least a couple of ACC schools are evaluating the 6-foot, 190-pound athlete from Baltimore (Md.) Mount St. Joseph, but it's not clear how close they might be to offering.

"Wake Forest, UVa, Ohio and Marshall are some of the schools that are showing interest," Benjamin explained. "I'm probably going to be camping at every one of them this summer."

While Benjamin would love to add more offers to his resume he's very content with the position he finds himself in today. Temple has made a great impression on him so far.

"I talk to them about every day," Benjamin said of Temple. "I went to their spring game in March and I loved it. I think the football program is great. The way it's turned around and had winning seasons the past two years is great.

"I like the energy that the head coach, Steve Addazio, gave off. I really like the new coaching staff."

Benjamin went on to say that Temple is his current favorite but he doesn't plan on making a decision until he learns whether other schools plan on offering.
