Brayden Bell's List Takes Shape

<b>Brayden Bell</b>, the 6-9 center from Utah, is one of the more skilled big men in the west and it appears that he's down to a handful of schools...

We spoke with Brayden Bell, 6-9 SR C Salt Lake City (Utah) Brighton, last night and got an update on his recruitment.

"I'm going to Ohio State next weekend," said Bell. "The other schools that I'm considering are mainly Utah, UCLA and Pepperdine. Indiana and Illinois have both showed a little interest, but nothing serious."

Bell gave us a partial list of his in-home visits.

"I'm meeting with Utah on the 9th, then Ohio State on the 14th and I think UCLA is on Tuesday the 21st," said Bell. "Pepperdine is also coming in at some point."

Bell hasn't scheduled any more official visits, but said he will likely visit the other schools on his list.

"I'm planning on visiting UCLA and Pepperdine," said Bell. "I've been to Utah on an unofficial visit already."

We asked Bell about the timing of his decision and he replied, "I'm going to try to sign in November."
