Hayford on Benzel: “Cody redshirted last year to improve his strength and athleticism, and I was really pleased with his work ethic and dedication. He is a very good outside shooter. Cody is on track to develop into a great player in our system.”

2014-15: Redshirted. He showed glimpses of what’s to come when he scored 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting from the 3-point stripe in EWU’s 89-55 exhibition victory over Puget Sound (11/9/14). He also had three rebounds and a steal in 11 minutes of action.

High School: Graduated from Ferris High School in 2014. He capped his career by playing in the Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association (WIBCA) All-State Game. Was given honorable mention 4A All-State accolades by Associated Press as selected by sportswriters and broadcasters. Earned MVP honors in the Greater Spokane League as a senior after averaging 21.4 points per game. He made 48 percent of his shots from three-point range and 58 percent from inside the arc. Benzel led Ferris to a final record of 18-5 after dropping its last two games of the season. Prior to that, he scored 19 points with two assists and two dunks to help Ferris capture the 4A District 8 title. Benzel also had season-best outings of 36 and 34 points. Earlier in the season, he broke a 63-all tie with a basket with 27 seconds left to beat Mead 67-63. He also earned first team All-GSL honors as a junior when he averaged 18.6 points. He scored a career-high 37 points in the district playoffs in 2013. Benzel also lettered as a sophomore.

Personal: Benzel was born Oct. 29, 1995, in Spokane, Wash. He intends on majoring in business or marketing. His parents are Ron and Molly Benzel. His older siblings, Jenny and Erik, also played basketball at Ferris. Jenny was a four-year starter and 2000 graduate, and Erik graduated the following year after starting two seasons for the Saxons.
