Expect those wide receiver numbers to increase dramatically this year as the Lions offense will open things up with the three, four, and even five receiver sets this fall.
Predictably, recruiting has picked up for the tall, swift receiver, and
schools across the south have taken notice.
"Arkansas was the first school to contact me," said Belt. "I've pretty much heard from every school in the ACC, SEC, and on the east coast. The only school that I'm interested in that I haven't heard from is Miami. Georgia and Louisville are probably recruiting me the hardest right now. I'm planning on going to Auburn's passing league and to Georgia for camps this summer. My Top teams right now are Georgia, Tennessee, Miami, and Virginia Tech."
What does Belt like about each school?
Georgia: The way they spread it out and use multiple wide receivers.
Miami: Miami uses the wide receiver for big plays, and I like the way they mix the run and the pass.
Tennessee: I like the history they have at wide receiver. They have sent guys to the NFL.
Virginia Tech: I like their program and how things are being run
Luella went 5-2 last year while playing a first year program partial schedule. They will now jump into Region 3-AAAA and play two of their first four games on the road against the likes of Lowndes and Warner Robins.
