Cornerback Tre Bell of Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep received his first offer at the end of January and since that point has seen his recruiting process take off. Now with six offers, Bell is one of the fastest rising prospects in the region.
"I got an offer from South Florida today, so I have six now," said Bell, who had already held offers from South Carolina, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Vanderbilt and Central Florida.
Bell, 5-foot-11 and 170-pounds, is obviously excited about the sudden streak of recruiting success.

"It feels amazing," said Bell. "It feels like all the hard work is paying off and the more work I put in, the better the results."
While recruiting has already taken off for Bell, he also mentioned that several other programs, including Clemson, Michigan, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, LSU, Virginia, Boston College and Connecticut, have raised their level of interest recently.
He will be taking his first junior day visit this weekend to West Virginia.
"I just want to get to check out Morgantown, meet the coaching staff and get to know a lot more about West Virginia," said Bell.
After his upcoming West Virginia visit, Bell only has one other tentative visit planned at this time.
"I will try to make it to South Carolina's spring ball, but after that I'm not really sure," said Bell, who also discussed the possibility of attending some camps and combines. "I'm not sure if I'm going to do a lot of combines or camps, but I will be attending the Badger Sports 7-on-7."
