No favorite for Benjamin

Tampa (Fla.) Tampa Catholic three-star wide receiver Zach Benjamin has landed eight offers and interest from a number of other schools through his spring season. He enters the summer without a favorite or leaderboard.
"I don't really have a leader right now," Benjamin said.
This past weekend, the 6-foot-4, 187-pound wide receiver took an unofficial visit to a Big East school.
"I went to UConn this weekend," Benjamin said. "I got a message from them saying to come up to camp. So I went up there and went to the camp. I also got to take a tour, get in front of all of the coaches, and learn more about them over the weekend.
"I didn't really know anything about them at first so I kind of took everything in," Benjamin added. "I learned a lot about the academics of the school and the coaches in general."
The Huskies have yet to extend an offer to Benjamin, but he believes they are heavily considering it at this time.
He will travel to another school in the Northeast in the near future.
"I am heading to Boston College next weekend," Benjamin said. "They haven't offered me yet. I have always liked that school so I just want to get up there and see what I can do."
After his visit to Boston College, Benjamin will join a number of other Sunshine State prospects on a tour of a number of college campuses.
"I am taking a bus tour with some other players," Benjamin said. "I know it will go to Georgia, Auburn, Tennessee, and Clemson."
Benjamin said additional visits are a possibility. With each visit, he is just trying to find a place that will suit him for his college career and education.
"I am just going to see where I fit into, what school I have the best relationship with the coaches at, and just what school I am most comfortable at and could see myself at for the next four or five years," Benjamin said.
As for a decision, that could come at any time between now and National Signing Day.
"I don't really have any timeline," Benjamin said. "I don't want to rush it."
As a junior, Benjamin had 13 receptions for 260 yards and five touchdowns.
