Big center making the rounds

Ellenwood (Ga.) Martin Luther King offensive center Bryce Bell is a big body at 6-foot-2, 330 pounds. With athleticism at that size, Bell is now starting to get some bigtime interest from college programs.

"I'm hearing from a lot of schools," Bell said. "I just came from UCF. I'm going to Ole Miss April 18 and April 9 I'm going to UCF again. Ole Miss is talking about and offer. Georgia Tech is talking about an offer. The Indiana Hoosiers too are talking about offering."

Recent trips to both UCF and Ole Miss have left Bell impressed with their football programs and their facilities.

"I love the weight rooms," he said. "The weight rooms at both schools are really good and they had real good lifting programs."

With some small school offers from programs such as Tennessee State and Morehouse, Bell is hoping to get some big school offers with some college visits and camp work. Along with possible spring practice visits to UCF, Ole Miss and Georgia Tech, Bell is hoping to work in some camp work as well.

"I know I'm going to Florida after the Spring practice," he said. "After that I know want to go to Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, UCF and South Carolina camps. I might be going to Auburn this weekend."

This past season, Bell proved why many coaches are interested in his signature.

"I had one of the best seasons I've ever had," he said. "I didn't give up any sacks all season. I had at least four pancakes a game. My running back had over 1700 yards and 1000 of them were up the middle."
