Henry Clay (Ky.) running back Elijah Bell picked up his first scholarship offer recently. Bell talks about that offer and his camps this off-season.

Elijah Bell worked out this weekend at the IMG Regional 7-on-7 Tournament in Knoxville (Tn.) this weekend. He impressed everybody who had their eyes on him and he also felt like he had a good weekend.

"It was pretty nice there. I did my thing," he said. "I felt like I competed with the best from everywhere and I out-worked just about all of them. My team showed up to play and we did work," he said.

Bell earned his first offer recently from Eastern Michigan.

"It was great getting the offer from Eastern Michigan. They run a great offense and have an outrageous running back coach (Mike Hart)," he said.

Obviously there's a long way to February and Bell acknowledges that.

"It's just the beginning of my recruiting actually. I have lots of big things coming my way. I'm just working hard every day to get offers, no matter who they are from," he finished.

Bell will be camping at Kentucky on June 10th and West Virginia on June 16th.
