Bennett started at receiver, running back and cornerback at West End High School in Birmingham, where he was named first-team all-state by the Alabama Sports Writers Association.

Bennett then enrolled at Vanderbilt, where he became the SEC's all-time leader with 236 career receptions and the only player in conference history to catch at least 75 passes in three seasons.
