Many of the top names are off the board, but we still have a few months before the usual National Signing Day in February. The U.S. Army All-American Game remains a big spot for blue-chip commitments as well, and in a few weeks, four-star wide receiver David Bell will be one of them.
Bell is the No. 2 player in Indiana, and his recruitment is quite Big Ten-focused.
Back over the summer, he announced an All-B1G top five, which appears to be the one that he is sticking with: Indiana, Iowa, Ohio State, Penn State, and Purdue.
Even with recruiting powers like Ohio State and Penn State involved, Purdue football might be the favorite for David Bell.
The Boilermakers have had two impressive seasons to start Jeff Brohm's tenure, and have serious momentum.
Brohm proved that he can make star freshman a huge part of the offense right away, with his use of receiver Rondale Moore this year. At 6-foot-2, Bell's a much different player than Moore, but it didn't go unnoticed.
From USA Today earlier this year:
“I don’t think we’re similar,” Bell said with a laugh. “He’s a lot quicker and faster than I am. But if I do go there, I think we would make a good combo with him on the inside and me on the outside. It would be hard to double team both of us. It’s amazing that he’s on the Biletnikoff watch list as a freshman. I’m happy for him.”
90-percent of the 21 247 crystal ball predictions have Bell as a Boilermaker, with Penn State and Ohio State splitting the additional predictions.
Moore is the No. 101 player in the country and No. 17 wide receiver. The U.S. Army All-American Game will be played on January 5.
