Steve Kragthorpe might be looking to add a junior college quarterback to Louisville's 2009…
Benjamin is a multiple-threat QB
"I liked the coaches and the program and the offense here," Benjamin told JCFootball.com recently. "I can run or just sit back and pick a defense apart. I just want to do what I have to do to win. If that means throwing for 300 yards then I can do that, but if it's running the ball or just handing it off and playing smart, I can do that too."
Last year, as a freshman, Benjamin started the final five games of the season when the starter went down with an injury and this year he's managed to start every game and has thrown for over 2,100 yards while completing 56% of his passes including 20 touchdowns and five interceptions while leading the Bears to a 7-3 record and a berth in the Valley of the Sun bowl.
On the recruiting front, Benjamin has one offer under his belt and a couple of D-1 schools have expressed interest in what he brings to the table.
"I got offered by Texas Southern recently and I have Louisville and Utah looking at me," Benjamin said. "They have both been asking for film on me, so we're getting that out to them to let them know what I can do."
Benjamin was a full-qualifier out of high school so he can leave at any time, but he plans to sign somewhere in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
