JUCO Standout Has Cowboys Back In Mix

Former South Carolina signee and recent standout for Mississippi Gulf Coast Comunity College Javon Bell is being mentioned again in connection with Oklahoma State recruiting.

Bell was offered by the Cowboys back in the summer and the 6-1, 185-pound speedster also has offers from a bunch of schools including South Carolina, Texas Tech, Tennessee, Southern Miss, Mississippi and Mississippi State. There has been little contact with Bell, but a source at Gulf Coast informed us that Bell is considering Oklahoma State and has had contact with Cowboys wide receiver coach Kasey Dunn in the past few days. Dunn was in Orlando, Fla., on Thursday night accompanying OSU receiver Justin Blackmon when he won his second Biletnikoff Award.

Bell is originally out of Jacksonville (Jean Ribault), Fla., and caught 65 passes for 940 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. He was also spectacular on special teams with kickoff and punt returns. In the recent Mississippi Bowl, Gulf Coast won 46-17 over powerhouse Blinn J.C. out of Texas. In the game Bell caught a 28-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Raymond Cotton just before halftime and then came back and caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from Cotton in the second half. In the game, Bell had seven receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns.

Oklahoma State and it's fans will be focused in on an announcement tomorrow in the St. Louis area as Brandon Sheperd is scheduled to make his decision between Oklahoma State and Missouri. Even if Sheperd chooses the Cowboys they still will be looking for another receiver in the 2012 class.
