Keegan Bell Coming to Town

After next weekends visit to Tiger Stadium during the Arizona football game, Keegan Bell thinks he should have a better idea of where he wants to attend college.

With 15 offers, comprising most of the SEC, Keegan Bell has managed to narrow down his top four teams.

 

After next weekends visit to Tiger Stadium during the Arizona football game, Bell thinks he should have a better idea of where he wants to attend college.

 

Bell, a 6-1, 180-pound point guard is known for having excellent vision on the court and for being able to knock down the long range shots.

 

He's narrowed his top teams, citing head coach John Brady as the main reason for LSU being on the list.

 

"Right now my top teams are Ole Miss, LSU, Vanderbilt and Georgia," said Bell. "I love talking to Brady, he's a real cool guy. When he used to coach in Alabama my dad knew him. He's real fired up and ready to get things done, not just win games, but national championships. He's a genuine guy who's fun to be around and he's just someone you want to play for and do well for."

 

Georgia picked up an early commitment from Bell back in January but after being committed for nearly six months he decided to open things back up.

 

"I just needed to make sure that was the right fit," he said. "I have nothing against the coaches or players and they are still in it but I needed to be 100 percent sure."

 

Bell said he made it to the NBA top 100 camp this summer, but was unable to make it to the ABCD camp because he had just switched schools and thought it would be more important to attend his new high school's camp.

 

Familiarity is something that Bell is looking for in a school because he knows there will be life away from the court. That is something that he knows he can have at LSU and in the Bayou State.

 

"I used to live in Louisiana and my dad coached at Northwestern State," said Bell. "I like that they went to the final four and that they all enjoyed themselves. I want it to be business, but I also want to know I can have a little fun. They've put themselves in a position to be in the top 10 in the nation every year and I'm excited about their possibilities."

 

Bell said he has already set up his official visits.

 

"I'm coming down to LSU the weekend of the (Sept.) 9th," he said. "I want to get the whole campus experience. I want to see what the atmosphere on campus is like and I should get a good taste of that with a big football game that weekend."

 

Bell said coaches like his ball handling skills and ability to make others on the court better.

 

"I can come down the lane to dish the ball, but it's my shot that I'm really known for," said Bell. "I like to get everyone involved."

 

What would Bell's ideal school present to him?

 

"I'm looking for a coaching staff who I feel most comfortable around," he explained. "I want it to be a nice group of guys so I can find the right fit and just go win some games."

 

Note** Bell said he has a 3.38 GPA and scored a 24 on his ACT.
