Odell Bell Profile
How is your season going? We're 4-0 right now. We are fourth in the state. Our biggest game of the season is this Friday. We are playing Bishop Carroll. We played Esau this past week. I had 21 carries for 215 yards and four touchdowns.
What do you play in addition to tailback? I play corner and strong safety. I get a little playing time on defense.
How would you describe yourself as a tailback? I'm a shifty back, a north and south runner...kind of like Barry (Sanders). I'll shake first, but, if there is no other way for me to get around them, I'll lower my shoulder.
What are your thoughts on recruiting thus far? I've been talking to coaches, but I've just been thinking about my season.
Have you set up any recruiting visits? I haven't really talked to them about it, I've just been all about my season.
Have you been on any visits this season? I went down to see KU and Oklahoma State play. I saw KU play against Northwestern, and I saw OSU play against Southwest Missouri State. KU lost, and OSU, I mean, it just wasn't a match-up for them. Rashaun Woods and his brother impressed me, though. He's one of a kind.
Who is recruiting you for Kansas? Bill Young.
How about Oklahoma State? Joe DeForrest
What will be the deciding factors in the school you choose? The way they run their offense, and the plays that they have for the running back. I want to go to a school where the running back is a big part of the offense. As for the school, I am looking for a place that is not too big, but not too small...something in the middle. I don't want it to be a real, real big city where there is a lot of trouble. I don't want it too small either...I want it just right.
Is staying close to home a concern for you? I really don't care.
Do you think that Northwest will come up with a Victory against Bishop Carroll tomorrow night? I hope so. I think we might pass a little bit more than usual. We're going to run the ball, because we are a running team, but as soon as they start keying on that run, our receivers can step up and make big plays for us.
