Miami wide receiver Travis Benjamin needs to put on a few pounds according to head coach Al Golden.  The coaching staff says that if he "can add 5, 10 pounds going into the season, it's going to make him a better player because he'll be durable and able to play with a little more power. And we'll be able to do more unique things with him and get him in the mix a little bit more."
Benjamin is a gamebreaker and anytime your coaching staff wants to use you more, you do what they say. Tue, Mar 1, 2011 08:30:00 PM

Miami wide receiver Travis Benjamin had five catches for 127 yards against Maryland.

Benjamin had some nifty moves on a catch and run, and is a viable #2 option for the Canes, making him a decent WR4 or WR5 for your team.  Team leading receiver Leonard Hankerson had just 66 yards, but caught the game winning touchdown for his tenth of the season.

Miami wide receiver Travis Benjamin led the 'Canes with four catches for 67 yards and a touchdown.

Leonard Hankerson scored again amongst his four grabs and 51 yards, while LaRon Byrd found the endzone for the first time this season.  Benjamin's grab was one for the highlight reels, as he went high to make snag the ball, broke a tackle and burst down the sideline for a score.  Consider both TB and Hank options next week at Virginia.

Miami wide receiver Travis Benjamin caught six passes for 96 yards and a touchdown in the 'Canes win over Pittsburgh.

Benjamin, who can easily be blamed for two of quarterback Jacory Harris' four INTs against Ohio State, bounced backed nicely today and clearly has his quarterback's trust.  Despite the depth at receiver in Coral Gables, it certainly looks like Benjamin and Leonard Hankerson (three catches, 36 yards and a touchdown) are leading the pack.

Miami receiver Travis Benjamin, along with defensive backs Cory Nelms, DeMarcus Van Dyke and Brandon McGee qualified for the NCAA National Championships in the 4x100 relay on Saturday with a school-record time of 39.57.

Surprisingly Benjamin only touched the ball 33 times last season, including punt and kickoff returns.  Miami has to find more ways to get the ball this playmaker's hands.

Wide receiver Travis Benjamin was Miami's wide receiver of choice when the Canes decided to go deep in Thursday's win over Florida State.  Benjamin finished with four catches for 128 yards and a score.

There was a lot of debate on who would emerge as the Canes' go-to receiver; Benjamin, Aldarius Johnson, LaRon Byrd or Leonard Hankerson.  Benjamin clearly won round one and is a fantasy consideration based purely on his speed.

Miami is hoping to trim the wide receiver rotation this fall. "We?re going to have five or six guys and have the guys you go to and make plays with," said coach Randy Shannon.

The two names that we see being the beneficiaries of this new direction are Travis Benjamin and Aldarius Johnson. Benjamin is a burner that can create and Johnson should be top target for quarterback Jacory Harris around the goal line.
