”When I think about Texas football I think about tradition and hard work,” Bell said. “It's no secret that Texas has not had its best seasons the past couple of years but I know that with Coach [Charlie] Strong and his staff coming in that they're looking to turn the program around. Texas is also known to produce great hard working high caliber players. And when a young guy like me sees that it is intriguing.”
Bell is a bit of an unknown on the national scene, but that could change over the next 12 months.
”The way I would describe my game to someone who has never seen me play is I am a competitor,” Bell said. “I do not shy away from competition, no matter what that level of competition might be. I am a deep threat in the passing game, and I am good with YAC. Most importantly I am hard on myself with blocking.”
What has the recruiting process been like for Bell?
”What I think about the recruiting process is that it is a grind,” Bell said. “You have to pay attention and be involved as much as possible. Taking recruiting classes helps but I learned that it is very important to go to camps that colleges host so you build relationships with your position coaches and recruiting coaches.”
Bell has visited numerous schools for camps and will continue moving forward throughout the summer months.
”I’ve been to a few camps such as TCU, North Texas and OSU/MHBU,” Bell said. “The camps are high-level camps. The competition was great. I also built relationships with my position coaches and learned a lot from them.”
