UA Game: Vonn Bell

Five-star safety Vonn Bell has narrowed his decision to Alabama, Ohio State and Tennessee, and has official visits upcoming to all three schools. Bell arrived in Orlando Sunday afternoon in preparation for the Under Armour game this Friday.

Vonn Bell is one of the top safety prospects in the country, and the Rossville (GA) Ridgeland athlete is in Orlando for the Under Armour game.

Bell, 6-foot, 190-pounds, is the subject of a three-way recruiting battle between Alabama, Ohio State and Tennessee.

"I don't really know when I will announce my decision, and I have official visits coming to all three schools," Bell stated. "We will see how it goes, and those will be real big in my decision."

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has taken an active role in Bell's recruitment, and he has the Buckeyes squarely in the mix for the safety.

"Coach Urb is great, and he's excited to get me back up there to see what that atmosphere is all about at Ohio State," he explained. "I was there for camp last summer, and it was great seeing the campus and being with the coaches. My mother was with me and she loved it up there. She will play a big part in the decision. Coach Meyer came to my playoff game a few weeks ago, and it meant a lot to me to have the Big Man show up."

Alabama and Tennessee are also in the mix for Bell, and both schools have impressed him throughout the process.

"I love both Alabama and Tennessee," Bell admitted. "My official visits will help me decide my school. Alabama is just a great school, and when I think of Alabama it's all about Coach Saban. They always get the best football players, and they bond together to play for championships."

"Tennessee is the school I've loved for a long while now," he continued. "I've been talking to (new head coach) Butch Jones a lot, and he seems like a great guy. I'm looking forward to meeting him personally, and spending time with his staff."
