HUNTINGTON — Columbia City basketball stand-out Drew Benedict signed with Huntington University last week, as the Forresters’ first recruit for the 2013 season.
Benedict, a 5-foot-10 senior shooting guard for the Eagles, is one of the area’s top shooters, holding Columbia City High School’s record for most 3-pointers made for a season and career, and is on pace to score more than 1,000 points by the end of this season — making him one of the top five in Columbia City’s history.
In his high school career, he has scored 183 3-pointers and is a three-time All-Northeast Hoosier Conference Team winner.
“He has been a vital part of a lot of success in high school, playing in one of the best programs in the state,” Platt said. “We think those things will translate into Drew having a great four-year career at Huntington.”
