Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey quarterback Reginald Bell Jr., (6’3, 175) attended both USC and UCLA’s Junior Day last month, for a chance to learn more about two of the nearby Pac-12 programs.
“I had a great time attending both Junior Days. It was good getting to know the coaches, learning about their academics, seeing the demeanor of the coaches, and having a chance to check out the facilities.”
After both visits, the Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey quarterback said he favors the Bruins.
“UCLA really stood out to me,” said Bell. “I was impressed by how much their teachers support the football program. They had several teachers speak at the presentation, which was pretty cool. Also, the campus was beautiful and they have an experienced coaching staff.”
Bell has not yet received an offer from the Bruins, but has been in communication with their wide receivers coach, Eric Yarber.
In addition to UCLA, Bell named the other programs that have been recruiting him so far, “Oregon State, Fresno State, San Jose State, Stony Brook, Penn University, and Georgia Tech.”
As the recruitment process continues to heat up for Bell, he described what he is looking for at the next level.
“Academics are very important to me. As well as the coaching staff and their experience level,” explained Bell. “I would also like to be apart of a spread offense.”
On April 7th Bell will be showcasing his talent at the “Best Of The Midwest Invitational Football Camp,” in Detroit (Mich.), at the Silverdome.
