Greenville Star Running Back Commits to Oregon

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Greenville’s St. Joseph Catholic School star running back Trey Benson is headed to Oregon. In a series of six tweets the 6-foot, 209-pound ball-carrier built anticipation in his followers before finally confirming what everyone had expected, that he had chosen the Ducks over fellow finalists Florida State, Louisville, Mississippi State, Missouri, Penn State, and Vanderbilt. As a sophomore and junior, Benson posted consecutive 1,800-yard, 22-plus touchdown seasons, displaying a level of production that piqued the interest of programs around the country. But it wasn’t until this offseason that his stock truly soared. At The Opening, New Orleans regional, the big-bodied back earned the running back MVP award and clocked a stunning 4.49 laser-timed 40-yard dash. Benson joins Oregon’s 2020 recruiting class as the 11th commitment and fifth on the offensive side of the ball.
