"I had a nice time at Iowa State, even though my trip was delayed," said Independence CC CB Allen Bell, who committed to Ole Miss last week. "I didn't get in there until Saturday after some flight delays, but once I got there it was really nice."
Even though he said the trip went well, he is still holding firm with his commitment to the Rebels.
"It was too cold up there," he said. "I'm from Florida and I like warmer climates. I said I was coming to Ole Miss and I am. I will sign with Ole Miss in February."
Bell, a 6-1 195-pounder with reported sub 4.4 40 speed, is back in Kansas taking care of his academics.
"My priority this semester will be to get my books straight. It should be no problem if I buckle down and that's what I intend to do, but I have to finish and be disciplined," he ended.
Over the Christmas break, Bell was entertaining going to either Ole Miss or Louisville with Nebraska and Iowa State on the outside looking in. He opted for the Rebels.
"There were some Florida guys I knew at Louisville, but when I thought about it over the break and talk to my Dad and brother, we decided on Ole Miss," he closed.
