KENT, Ohio– Kalin Bennett will be dressed and ready to play for Kent State in the season opener Wednesday night.

The 6-foot-10 forward made history when he became the first person with autism to sign a national letter of intent with a Division I school.

“We held him accountable on the court, we held him accountable in the classroom and I think that’s what made him so super,” said Clarence Finley, Bennett’s high school coach, when we spoke to him last year.

Tipoff is 7 p.m. against Hiram.
