LOS ANGELES – The LA KISS have been assigned veteran defensive back Ter’Ran Benton, the League office announced today.
Benton (6-0, 205, Iowa State) spent the last three AFL seasons in Iowa where he racked up 150 tackles, 20 pass breakups and eight interceptions during his time with the Barnstormers. He made his professional debut with the team in 2012, collecting 13 tackles in four appearances as a rookie and enjoyed his best statistical season to date in 2013, when he totaled 71.5 tackles and five picks in 17 games. He logged 65.5 tackles and three interceptions in 18 games.
Prior to turning pro, Benton was a four-year starter at Iowa State. He recorded 188 tackles, including 13.5 for loss, and three interceptions in his career.
To make room on the roster for Benton, the KISS have placed second-year defensive back Donnie Fletcher on recallable reassignment.
