Most high school seniors bound for big-time Division I programs have already made a decision on where they're going to attend school next season. Anthony Bennett is the top remaining college basketball prospect remaining among the 2012 recruits, and he has narrowed his list down to two schools: The Oregon Ducks and the UNLV Runnin' Rebels. Bennett is a strong power forward out of Findlay Prep who can provide one of these teams with instant inside presence.
With this much publicity placed on one recruit this late in this cycle, there's always the worry of recruiting violations, as so much attention is being foisted on one man. And it appears late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has hit that sensitive chord.
UNLV needs you Anthony! @Salsaa_Stylez @ABennett24 @UNLVRebellion @Salsaa_Stylez @ABennett24 @UNLVRebellion— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) May 8, 2012
If you're wondering about Kimmel's relationship with the Rebs, he spent one year at UNLV before moving onto Arizona State. He did not get a degree from either school.
