Mason gets another early signing

Welcome to George Mason Paris Bennett. The Patriots were able to get another early signing for their recruiting class of 2009. Paris is a 6'6" forward who might end up playing at the 3 or 4 spot. Being that he is somewhere between 190- 220 lbs according to some sites, I think he will probably end up playing more of a power forward role. As a sophomore he was once ranked as the #47 player in the country at Here is more detailed account of his capabilities from ESPN's recruiting site:
"Bennett is a combo-forward who presents mismatch problems for his team. With the ability to take defenders to the low block and score with his back to the basket or stretch opposing defenses all the way to the three-point line, he is a difficult match-up for most defenders. The two biggest question marks that surround him are in regards to his attitude and position. He goes through periods of immaturity where he doesn't always play hard and demonstrates poor body language. In terms of his position at the next level, he may lack both a four man's length as well as a three man's quickness. Physically, he does have the potential to eventually have a terrific body. He has a naturally strong frame with wide shoulders that could be easily chiseled given the time in the weight room. He is also pretty crafty with the ball and has a good natural feel for the game. Ultimately, he is a mid to high major talent who should have an excellent college career if he can get out of his own way."
Check out some highlights of him in the video below:

Blogger's good for you. said...

I would love for us to get a couple recruits that we never seem to get...the 6'10 big man, who'll give us a little height down low (but, Thomas didn't need much more than his 6'6 frame to dominate in the CAA), and a bulls-eye 3-pt. shooter (unlike the inconsistent Dre Smith)...but, so far, these two guys are a good start for 2009-10.

Any idea from anyone on what's taking the schedule so darn long to come out? This is's almost October...
