"It is starting to be a little bit busy," says the stocky 5-foot-11, 225 pounder with a 365 pound bench-press. "North Carolina State, Miami, and Marshall was in this week. Michigan and North Carolina are supposed to come in the next few weeks."
Miami is certainly a big name on the recruiting scene, and they are high on Bell's list.
"They want to wait and see how I do this season. They did not say if they will offer, but they were talking about how I fit into their system. Frank Gore will be starting this season, and he was supposed to start this year. Next year, he will be a senior and could even leave a year early. They also signed a guy this year, so by the time I were to get up there we could both compete for a job."
According to Bell, the Hurricanes have seen film and like his style. However, another school has offered and is ready for a commitment.
"I could commit to NC State right now, but it is too early. I still have a test to take and a season to play. Who knows, I could still commit to them."
Though with the commitment possibility out there, Bell is not ready to state any team as a leader.
"My top-five is NC State, Michigan, Miami, North Carolina, and Tennessee, with nobody in the lead."
