Rajaan Bennett may want to avoid a Vol package deal
So you probably know that Vandy's in the running for Georgia running back Rajaan Bennett, a big, bullish lad whom Rivals gives four stars and compares to the former Georgia Bulldog/current Denver Bronco Knowshon Moreno.
Like a lot of kids, Rajaan's been interested in the Commodores since the summer but is suddenly getting calls and visits and a scholarship offer from a certain school — I mean collegiate sports franchise — in Knoxville.
He's visiting UT this weekend, along with another Georgia running back, Rajion Neal. Two kids named Rajaan (just with different spellings). Kinda like two kids from Calhoun high school.
But Rajion, who Rivals pegs as America's No. 9 prep running back, just committed to the Vols. Rajaan, who's the No. 19 back on Rivals.com but rated much lower by Scout.com, now has some time to think about all those prep superstar runners who'll be wearing orange this season.
Of course, Vandy's got Warren Norman, Zac Stacy and Wesley Tate. So maybe Rajaan just goes to Kentucky.
