Dallas Lake Highlands 2018 three-star defensive end Trumane Bell II has picked up three FBS offers, double-digit FCS offers, and should be in line for more offers in the coming weeks and months.
The 6-foot-2, 227-pound Bell holds FBS offers from New Mexico State, ULM, and Army. He camped Sunday at Baylor, which has shown recent interest in the potentially position-versatile sleeper.
"My experience with Baylor was awesome because of how the atmosphere was, and the feeling felt so great, making me feel like this is the place to be," Bell told Scout on Monday. "And the coaches were terrific and also making me a better player and teaching me the importance of getting my education.
"I believe I performed great because loved what they saw in my testing, position drills, and 1-on-1's. So overall I grade my performance an A+."
Bell ran a solid 4.82-second electronic-timed 40 at The Opening Dallas in early March en route to a very impressive Nike Football Rating of 110.76, which also included a 4.36 shuttle and 36-inch vertical.
Bell said he primarily worked out with Baylor at defensive end, but that the staff continues to look at him as a possible option at linebacker as well.
"The feeling I got from them was love because they knew who I was and they were very excited for me being there with them," said Bell, whose father played football for Nebraska in the early 1990's. "I spent time with my defensive line coach, coach (Elijah) Robinson, and he was great. He was teaching me new things to be a better defensive lineman, and also teaching me the importance of the game of football, so that was really awesome."
After the camp visit to Baylor, Bell has high interest in Baylor, he said.
As a junior in 2016, Bell recorded 8 1/2 sacks, four forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries primarily playing defensive end.
