Defensive back Derrius Bell is starting to get to used to moving. However, it looks like his next will be his last.
After his sophomore season, the 5-foot-9, 157-pounder had to move after his first high school, Dallas (Texas) Wilmer Hutchins was closed. Now, at Arlington (Texas) Grace Prep, he's on the move again after head coach Mike Barber was dismissed from the program.
"A lot of football players left, so that's one of the reasons I'm leaving," Bell said. "I'm either going to Ennis or Dallas Hillcrest. I'm leaning mostly towards going to Ennis. They have a great program and I like the coach over there. I think they could give me a lot more exposure as well."
Bell has also been adding scholarship offers. His first two, from UTEP and Baylor, have now been joined by Tulsa, Colorado State, and SMU. One team is in the lead with a few others coming close behind.
"Out of all of my offers, I'm thinking about going to Baylor the most," Bell said. "They're the highest on my list. Nebraska is recruiting me real hard, so I need to see where that goes. Tulsa would be second on my list of schools that have offered me."
Bell took in the Texas A&M camp and is heading to the Tulsa event on July 22. He's been playing summer basketball which has kept him pretty busy. However, he's not going to delay a decision much longer.
"That's what I'm leaning towards doing," he said. "The next two or three weeks, I'll be committed. I'm trying to see what a few schools do like Nebraska. If they offer, I could go there but if not, I'll probably be going to Baylor."
