Reynoldsburg Wide Receiver Mykel Traylor-Bennett Commits To Cincinnati

Reynoldsburg isn't exactly a hotbed for recruiting but Mykel Traylor-Bennett is a good looking receiver coming out of the suburban Columbus school. MTB stands 6'4" and weighs 185 pounds but will wind up playing around 200 pounds for the Bearcats.

The comparison that everyone jumps to when a big wide receiver becomes a Bearcat is Armong Binns. In some respects this fits with MTB. His height and weight mirror those of Binns coming out of Pasadena High School. Like Binns Traylor-Bennett isn't the fastest guy but he runs excellent routes, separates from defensive backs with ease and in the case where he is covered can just go up and out muscle people for the ball.

MTB had offers from Syracuse and Minnesota before camping with the Bearcats. He impressed the staff enough to garner an offer, an offer that turned into a commitment in rapid succession. Traylor Bennett is the fourth Ohio prospect to commit to the Bearcats so far in the class of 2013. Video is available after the jump.
