"Coach (Marty) Long and the University of Arizona stayed true," Bell said. "They called every single week."
Bell has seen most of the schools in the Pac-10 and Arizona was "by far" his favorite.
"I have a real strong feeling that Arizona is the team of the 2000's," said Bell. "I feel we're going to compete for the Rose Bowl. That's the place for me to become my best."
Bell is the type of big tackle that the Wildcats have lacked. Not only is he a big player, but he has quickenss and good footwork. As far as playing right away?
"I'll do whatever is good for the team."
