Quick hit: Playing both ways during his high school, Bessent is a ballhawk, which should serve him well as he vies with numerous others to replace Chris Davis in the Tigers' starting lineup opposite Jonathon Mincy.
Malzahn says: "Very athletic. Coach Melvin Smith identified him as one of the top corners early on, and he hung in there, kept recruiting him, and we really felt like we got a guy that can help us immediately. He's got very good ball skills, and a very good cover guy."
