(Stone Mountain, GA) - Terrell Bell verbally committed to Virginia Tech a couple days after unofficially visiting the Blacksburg campus in August.
"Everybody was helpful and the campus was really nice," said Bell. "It was just a good situation for me there."
Yesterday, he made it official after signing with the Hokies while holding offers from Providence, Georgia State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Cincinnati, and Georgia.
"I've been getting recruited by them since March of my junior year," he said. "I developed a good relationship with their coaches. That had a lot to do with it. They're in the ACC Conference which is big time basketball. I just couldn't pass it up."
Bell played this summer on the AAU circuit with the Atlanta Celtics. Now that his recruiting process is over, Bell is ready to concentrate on his senior season with the Pirates.
"We got a new coach, so the expectations are high," Bell said. "I'm a Captain again this year. We've got a really good team. Our post players are young, but they're very athletic. This is going to be a big year and we feel confident that we can make it all the way."
Bell, a three-star prospect, chose the Hokies over Georgia and Cincinnati. He is very firm about his decision.
"I'm sticking with it," he said. "I'm not going anywhere else. I'm not taking anymore visits. I feel very comfortable with my decision."
