Benton through Clearinghouse

Good news for Auburn today. The NCAA Clearinghouse has cleared incoming receiver DeAngelo Benton to play for the Tigers this fall, reported.
Benton graduated from high school two years ago but didn't have the grades to get into LSU either of the past two years. Two years ago Benton played at Hargrave Military Academy. After he again failed to qualify academically, Benton chose to take classes at Bastrop High School instead of going the community college route.
This time Benton made the grades. That's not the only difference. Benton signed with Auburn this time when LSU retracted its scholarship offer at the last minute.
The former five-star recruit will have an opportunity to play right away this fall. Receiver is one of the positions Auburn needs to upgrade, seemingly making this a good fit for the two sides.
