Former Indiana IOL Kahlil Benson is already making an impression among the Buffs. In a recent YouTube upload by Well Off Media, Deion Sanders Jr captured an interesting exchange between Coach Prime’s new recruits. In what is seen as a healthy competition, the 6’6 junior challenged David Conner saying, “I’m here to take your spot, you been here.”
