It's been slow on the recruiting front for a while, but earlier tonight, there was a breakthrough, as the Bears were able to snag a commitment up front in Arizona guard Kamryn Bennett. He becomes the second Arizonan in this class, joining quarterback Luke Rubenzer.

Bennett, who has offers from Air Force, Oregon State, San Jose State and UTEP, had reportedly been watching The Drive to get a feel for the staff. Apparently he liked what he saw.

I usually add a "The Tape" section, but don't have time to do that right now, so a tape breakdown of Bennett will be coming later in the week - possibly even tomorrow.
