Bench is expected to train with quarterbacks coach George Whitfield in California this weekend and possibly take visits to one of those schools the following weekend. Bench, eligible to play this season, has three total years of eligibility plus a redshirt available after leaving Penn State this spring. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Bench appeared in two games for the Nittany Lions last season, completing 2 of 8 passes.

The young man didn't like what he heard from O'Brien after spring practice, so he is taking advantage of the rule allowing Penn State players to transfer and be eligible immediately. Good for him.

SG, thanks, but I'm still confused, in who the hell is "Steven Bench"???

SG, if I may, I think what OT is getting at, is why the hell anyone needs to know the name of a guy who was rated the FIFTY-THIRD best pro-style QB in his class, and is 2 for 8 passing in his college "career." The guy's jersey should just say "clipboard holder" on the back. So again...

Who the hell is Steven Bench???

I take back the part about his jersey. His last name fits just fine.

This is what his HS recruiting was in 2011. Class of 2012...didn't play much as a Freshman and didnt appear to have much chance to play in the future....MSST was one that recruited him earlier. He had previously committed to Rice before he committed to PSU.

I meant I was that smartarse. On a serious note, he would have been a decent QB at Rice, but bought the line PSU was spilling.
