One of the many players at Jackson High that will on the watch list this season, Bellinger recently took part in a camp at Auburn and says it was a great experience for him and his teammates.
"Being there for the camp we visited the complex and it was great," Bellinger says. "It was a great environment. They brought us in like we were family. My brother came out to watch me play and I just had to put on a show for him."
At 5-9, 165 with 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash, Bellinger is one of the fastest players in the South this year and also has great hands as a receiver. Hoping to follow behind his brother and play major college football as well, Bellinger says it's great to have him to look up to and learn from.
"When we were at Miami Beach I saw all the recruiters come in," Bellinger says. "It was kind of hard for him. I kept asking him what school he was going to because he was under a lot of pressure. I saw him stressing with it. He just told me when it's my time to make a decision I just need to take it slow and don't rush into it. He said a lot of people commit early and that's what he did as well. Then he de-committed. He doesn't want me to do that. He said just to take it slow and do what's best for me."
Hearing from Missouri, Middle Tennessee and Mississippi State in addition to Auburn, Bellinger says he's still waiting on that first big offer to drop but he's definitely got a few schools in mind starting with the Tigers.
"I'm just trying to be patient," he says. "I think they will come. I really like Auburn and especially with my brother there. I also like Florida, Mississippi State, and Missouri."
