Only Tucker Bennett Days Until USF Football

Can you trust a man with two first names? Can you trust a walk-on freshman safety?

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

#28 S Tucker Bennett
Freshman, 6'2", 195 lbs.

Stats in 2014: Bennett spent last season at Merritt Island High School.

Spot on Fall Camp Depth Chart: Not listed.

How He Came to USF: From (obviously) Merritt Island High, where he played strong safety and earned 5A all-state honors while also lettering in soccer. That's not one you see very often, since both football and soccer are fall sports. He joined the Bulls as a walk-on this summer.

Recruiting Rankings: Tucker isn't listed by any of the major recruiting services.

Projected Playing Time: Likely none-- the Bulls have a lot of bodies in the secondary, and Bennett is very young. But he's got a good frame and good athleticism, so perhaps he'll take a redshirt year and can contribute on special teams in the future.

Highlights: Here's the film from Tucker's senior season-- he was playing some very questionable teams, but I like his athleticism and ability to play centerfield.
