Land O'Lakes linebacker Darius Wells verbally committed to Benedict College on Wednesday.

"I am blessed to say that I've committed to Benedict College!! #GoTiger #BC18," he tweeted.

Wells was a key component of a defense that forced two shutouts and kept the Gators' first three opponents to a combined 13 points last season.

The 6-foot, 225-pounder pulled off 42 solo tackles in his senior year and earned SAC honors.

Benedict is a Division II program in Columbia, S.C. The Tigers went 4-6 last season.
