"LSU has had two great recruiting classes in the past couple of years, and I think they are a team on the rise. They need safety help immediately, too.
"I only live two hours from Auburn, and I grew up an Auburn fan. A big thing with Auburn is that it's close to home.
"I grew up watching Tennessee," Bell adds. "I was a huge fan. I love the coaching staff and the atmosphere at Tennessee."
Bell has written scholarship offers from more than a dozen colleges, but Georgia, LSU, Auburn and Tennessee appear to be the teams to beat right now. He has been to camps at Auburn, Tennessee and LSU. He plans to attend a camp at Georgia in July.
