"It was a good, physical game with Alabama. The defense did a good job of holding their offense. I can't wait until I get to go up there and contribute. I'm going to take my official visit in January, but I'm also hoping to go to the Egg Bowl on November 26th."
"Mississippi State is in both of their top schools," said Bell. "They have high interest and I hope they end up there with me."
One of Bell's coaches at John Curtis - Johnny Curtis - played at Mississippi State. John Curtis is 11-0 and seeded No. 1 in Class 2A. The Patriots are on the road this week in the second round at No. 17 Ville Platte (8-3).
"The feeling is still there," said Bell of losing to Evangel Christian in the state finals in each of the past two years. "Winning a state title is the only thing that can take it away. We have to keep being physical in practice."
Bell leads Curtis in sacks with 12. He's also among the team leaders with 45 tackles, including a season-high nine vs. Westgate. The rangy senior has batted down five passes and recorded a safety.
