Bell Talks Ragin' Cajuns

West St. Johns DL Eric Bell (6-3, 247) is another Louisiana prep football athlete that has been slow to gain interest from colleges this spring. Bell, holding one offer in hand traveled up to UL's campus to attend the Ragin' Cajuns Junior Day in March and came away impressed.

"I wanted to come in to talk to see what UL has to offer and look around at the facilities," Bell stated. "I liked the facilities and I had the chance to talk to Coach Rebowe and the defensive coordinator Coach Stewart. Coach Rebowe said they would be coming around to watch for spring and they want me to come back in to one of their summer camps. They are definitely a program I'm going to look at hard and come to one of the summer camps to work out for the coaches."

Eric Bell and West St. Johns had the opportunity to play for the State 1A Championship against Ouachita Christian losing 23-7 in the Super Dome this past December. The North Texas staff watched the video of that game while recruiting teammate Jaylin Smith and it didn't take long for them to offer Bell this year.

"Coach Gains offered me from North Texas, right now they are at the top of my list," Eric mentioned. "I plan on going up there this summer to camp and meet the coaches and look around campus. Coach Gains said they wanted to be the first to offer me and he said the really want me to be part of the program. Right now its North Texas and UL; we will see what happens after spring football." What are Eric Bell's summer plans for football camps?

"Right now I plan on attending camps at North Texas and UL," Bell stated. "I'm going to wait and see what schools show interest in me during spring football and then I will look at some of those camps as well. I'm keeping my options open for other schools; I just haven't seen what other programs are going to talk to me about their camps yet."

Eric Bell is scheduled to take the ACT test this summer. Recommended Stories
