The University of Georgia has received its third verbal commitment out of the state of Florida for 2010.  OL Brent Benedict, out of Jacksonville, committed to the Dawgs on 6-15. 

Benedict, who plays at Bolles High, committed to Georgia instead of schools such as Florida, Alabama, Ohio St., Penn St., Southern Cal, UCLA, Notre Dame, Miami, and Georgia Tech.

Benedict is 6′5″ and weighs in at 278 pounds. He is a very athletic offensive lineman who runs the 40-yard dash in 5.07 seconds, is sure to fit in well with Coach Stacey Searels' scheme.  

Benedict is rated at No. 40 on Rivals.com Top 100 and is the No. 5 rated Offensive Tackle according to Rivals.com. On Scout.com, he is rated as the No. 9 Offensive Tackle.

Earlier today the Dawgs received another commitment from WR Michael Bennett out of Alpharetta, Ga. Bennett is rated as the No. 98 Wide Receiver on Scout.com.

Bennett, who is 6′3″ and 185 pounds, had received offers from Wisconsin, Southern Miss, and Indiana before deciding to commit to the Dawgs.

This brings Georgia’s total number of commitments for the 2010 season to seven.
