Arizona Western running back Greg Bell plans to visit Louisville next month

Arizona Western College running back Greg Bell recently landed a scholarship offer from Louisville

Arizona Western College running back Greg Bell has built a relationship with Louisville assistant Chris Klenakis, which recently resulted in a scholarship offer.

"I was excited about the offer because that's a big time ACC school and they just had the Heisman winner," Bell told Cardinal Authority.

The 6-foot, 200-pound back is intrigued about the possibility of what role he could play for the Cardinals program.

"Coach Klenakis said that I would have the chance to come in and start," he said.

That chance meshes well with his desires when it comes time to commit to his next school.

"In my next school I'm looking for early playing time and the best chance for me to get to the NFL," he explained.

As a freshman at Arizona Western, Bell rushed for 1,187 yards and seven touchdowns in 11 games.  He averaged 6.6 yards per carry to help guide the Matadors to an impressive 11-1 season. 

"I feel like I can do it all," he said.  "Catch out the back field, run between the tackles and outside. I compare myself to Reggie Bush when he was in college."

A product of Chula Vista (Calif.) Bonita Vista High School, Bell originally committed to San Diego State before moving on the Arizona Western.

Also holding offers from Arizona and Utah, with a host of others expressing an interest, Bell says that his recruiting interest "is all even right now" and that he claims no current favorites.

He plans to visit Louisville in June.
