"It feels great," Bell said. "It's an offer I was kind of hoping for. The in-state offer, everybody wants that offer from their home state. It felt really good to add this one."
Bell said he was told of his offer today by his head coach, Rich Hansen, who spoke with Rutgers coach Kyle Flood earlier today.
"That's pretty special," Bell said. "I was kind of waiting on them to offer for a while now, but I think it has been different with the new coach."
Rutgers and Bell have not been in contact since the offer.
"I haven't gotten a chance to meet the new staff, but I'm going to get in touch with them soon," Bell said. "I'm going to definitely go down in Piscataway to check them out soon.
"Nebraska had a really good season this year in the Big 10," Bell said. "They have really good academics. Florida is a dream school. To get that, talking to [head coach Will Muschamp] and having them tell me they wanted to offer was really big. I'm really happy about that one."
"It was fun," Bell said. "They showed me a really good time. I got a chance to meet the whole coaching staff and the basketball game was really fun. The Coliseum was filled all the way to the top. I really enjoyed that a lot."
