Bell Taking Things Slow

The elite Diamond Bar (Calif.) junior, Kanya Bell, will take all of his visits before deciding...

There aren't too many players more versatile or explosive than Kanya Bell. He's an elite prospect as a corner and receiver and will also play some safety this coming season. He's dynamic with the ball in his hands and is the kind of receiver capable of catching a short hitch, making two or three guys miss and taking it to the house.

He also has the potential to be a lockdown cover corner but said most of the schools recruiting him right now like him at receiver and that's also where he wants to play in college.

"My summer was pretty mellow, I just focused on getting ready for our upcoming season," Bell said. "I didn't go to any camps or do any unofficial visits. I do go up to USC for their camp but didn't work out, I just went up there and hung out for the day.

"My plan right now is to focus on my team and our season and then once our season is over, then I'll turn my attention to recruiting. I'm only a junior so I have a lot of time before I need to worry about making my decision. I plan to take all my trips and go through the recruiting process."

Bell said he already has a good idea of what schools he wants to visit.

"I want to visit Oregon, Florida, Boise State, Washington and Arizona State," Bell said. "Oregon and Florida haven't offered but the others have. Oregon is recruiting me though and I've gotten a few letters from Florida. Hopefully with a big season, I'll get a little more looks from the SEC.

"I also have offers from Nebraska, Oregon State, UCLA and USC. I don't need to visit USC or UCLA since they're close to home and I can go up and visit them both any time. Right now, I'm still open to everyone. I grew up a USC fan but that won't factor in to my decision, I'm just looking for the best overall fit for me and where I'll be most comfortable."
