Auburn and Alabama are considered the favorites to land the four-star outside linebacker from Phenix City, Ala., and Benton admitted to having the best relationships with members of the Tide & Tigers’ coaching staff.
The state’s No. 2 prospect said he was intrigued by Auburn’s lack of depth at linebacker next season. Of course, Alabama also has a recent history of sending top-tier linebackers to the NFL.
Benton is ranked as the nation’s No. 6 outside linebacker.
Unless otherwise indicated, rankings come from the 247Sports Composite.
