"I play linebacker and running back now but I'll probably play strong safety in college," Bell told Tiger Rag. "Some schools are recruiting me to play linebacker but I want to play safety. I like to hit. I like to play the pass and the run. I have good speed and I am a hard hitter. Most coaches say I have good instincts."
Bell's ability to play well against the run and the pass is evident by the 97 tackles, six sacks and four interceptions he posted as a junior.
With many scholarship offers to choose from, Bell is focusing on four SEC schools at the present time.
"LSU, Auburn, Georgia and Tennessee would be my top four right now," he said. "Right now I would have to say it is LSU then Auburn and Georgia, and then Tennessee. They are all real close but I've just been talking to the coaches at LSU a lot more."
LSU was one of Bell's summer camp stops, and he said the Tigers' coaches and players did a good job of entertaining him and showing him what the program has to offer.
"They (LSU) had two good signing classes the last couple of years and they >are going to be good for the next four or five years," said Bell. "I really like coach (Nick) Saban a lot. They have a pretty campus with all of the oak trees all over and they are getting some new apartments for the players. I look at how the players interact with one another and at LSU they all seemed like they got along good with one another."
