Fells, since last spring, has lost some weight, trimming down from probably 260ish to 240. It's increased his athleticism and quickness considerably.
In basketball, he's one of the best, unknown frontcourt players in Southern California. He's very good at using his big body around the basket, but has a good skill set, able to score with a variety of solid post moves. He plays hard, and is technically good, getting rebounds from strength as well as position.
In football last season Fells said he played defensive end for Fullerton primarily and had 12 sacks. Having trimmed down, you'd have to think that Fells would be even better during his senior football season.
"I like both sports," Fells said. "I really don't know which one I'd like to play. I probably like basketball a little better. I'm probably looking to play basketball, but if I had a good senior season in football and get more offers, I'd play football. I'll probably take the best scholarship I can get and if that's a football scholarship, I'd do that."
In basketball, he's getting recruited by UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton.
Fells said he has a 3.1 GPA and scored a solid 900 on the SAT.
