What They're Saying:
"I think he's a closet perfectionist. Jerrelle gets a little frustrated with himself when he doesn't do something the way he wants to ... but he's clearly a talent — a hybrid forward who can drive from the perimeter and play in the post, and a rugged rebounder who has surprised us with his skill level." - Head Coach Pat Skerry

"The Tigers clearly have a player of the year candidate in Georgetown transfer Jerrelle Benimon." - The Baltimore Sun

"Benimon averaged 17 points and 11 rebounds this season and should be the CAA's Player of the Year." - Seth Davis, Sports Illustrated
