Bell's Recruitment Heats Up

Brayden Bell, a 6-9 junior C/PF from Utah, is hearing from elite, high major programs, including schools in the ACC, Big 12 and Big East...

Brayden Bell, 6-9 JR C/PF Brighton (Utah) High, played very well this past weekend at the Las Vegas Easter Classic. Bell's recruitment prior to this weekend was already heating up and it's sure to get even more interesting after his play in Vegas.

Bell told us prior to the weekend that he was hearing from Louisville, North Carolina, Kansas, Utah, UConn and BYU, among others. A source close to Bell indicated that UCLA is also showing interest in the sharp-shooting big man.

Bell told us that he doesn't have a leader at this time. "I'm keeping my options open," said Bell.

While Bell hasn't yet met with any coaches at his school, he said he's supposed to meet one coach in the near future. "I'm suppose to meet with Coach Pitino soon," said Bell.

Bell has not yet taken any official visits, but plans on scheduling them as soon as he takes the SAT.
