School: Charlotte (NC) Vance High School
Stats: Last season Bell was one of the Charlotte area's top defensive backs, registering 78 tackles and two interceptions on the year. He also collected two punt return touchdowns, two kickoff return touchdowns and four pass receptions for scores.
Scouting Report: At 5-11, 180 pounds, Vance blistered the course at Virginia Tech during the Nike Camp held in Blacksburg, registering an eye-popping, combine-best 4.37-second 40-yard dash. To prove it wasn't a fluke, Bell attended the Shrine Bowl Combine held in Charlotte in May and ripped off a 4.29-second 40-yard dash. While hand-held 40-yard dash times are notoriously fast, there's no mistaking Bell's outstanding speed. Add in a 32-inch vertical leap and you've got a prospect that's turned more than a few heads.
