Seminoles pursue 2022 ATH Luke Bennett as PWO


2022 running back/wide receiver Luke Bennett traveled to Florida State this past weekend. The Pierce County standout was recently contacted by Florida State, which led him to come to Tallahassee to meet the coaches and see the university in person.

Luke Bennett was contacted by FSU Director of Player Personnel Chuck Cantor making contact with Luke while trying to get him to come in for a visit.

“Coach Cantor contacted me to come and meet the coaches and see the school,” Bennett said. “I stayed all day. On the way home, Tennessee called and they’re trying to get me to come (and see them). I’m supposed to talk to FSU here again soon. Wake Forest just called too. FSU is looking at me for a PWO offer, which is fine. If I end up going, I know I will work and eventually get a scholarship.

Luke’s brother is Stetson Bennett, the Georgia Bulldog quarterback who led the program to its first title in nearly 40 years. Luke says he’s spoken to his brother about the difficulty of being a walk-on and is looking for the best fit for him personally.

“I also have a PWO offer from Georgia, which is cool,” Bennett said. “I’ve been a fan all my life, but I’m someone who likes to do his own thing. It was so cool to see what Stetson was able to do this year. I’m so proud. He tells me to keep going. working because being an extra is going to be tough. I know that, and like him, I’ll bet on me every time. He wants me to go somewhere that makes me happy. After that visit to FSU, I really enjoyed it. “It was a first-class visit. I didn’t build the relationships with the Georgia coaches like I have with FSU.”

Luke was in town for his first visit to FSU. He came away impressed with the overall program offered by the college program and the football program.

“It was my first visit to FSU – I’ve never been there,” Bennett said. “Coach Cantor first contacted a former high school coach and from there I talked to him about visiting. He said they liked my movie and wanted me to come over there to meet them and look around. I really like it. College Town was really nice. It’s growing which is always good. It’s only two and a half hours from where I live, which I really liked. J love the fact that everything on campus is close and not so scattered.

He was a wide receiver and knows what it is. Coach Dugans appreciated the way I am came on such short notice.

Bennett expects to find out the final details of what FSU is offering soon.

“I just pray to the Lord to lead me on the right path,” Bennett said. “Things really depend on the next phone calls I have. The connection I have with the coaches at FSU and the way they made me feel so welcome really stood out to me. I spent some time with Coach Cantor all day and at the end we were playing ping pong It’s relationships like that, I just really liked what I built with FSU and the staff.
