“Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve worked as hard as I can to get better everyday. Being one of the top players in the state is an honor and I’m going to continue to work hard to hold that spot.” This is the mindset of 5-star linebacker Markail Benton out of Phenix City, Ala. and that mindset is more than likely the reason he was awarded 5-stars, the number three spot in our In-State Top 25, offered by a number of schools and has committed to play in the Under Armour All American game. And now the highly touted linebacker has his top three schools after releasing a top six nearly a month ago.
