Texas CB makes another switch

It appears that Arlington (Texas) Grace Prep Academy cornerback Derrius Bell has made another move and this looks to be his last.
Since moving originally from the closed Wilmer Hutchins High School to Grace Prep, the 5-foot-9, 157-pounder thought that he was done. Now, he's at a new school and hopes this will be the last.
"I'm just getting settled in Dallas Hillcrest," Bell said. "I know a lot of people there and they seem to have a good team. So we just thought it was the right decision after some changes happened at Grace Prep."
Bell says on the recruiting front, his scholarship offers remain the same. Those include Baylor, Colorado State, Tulsa, UTEP, and SMU. Three other schools, Wisconsin, Texas A&M, and Nebraska, are showing interest but have yet to offer.
He also has two leaders on his list.
"I think Baylor is up there and so is Tulsa," Bell said. "I just like the way they're recruiting me and have been after me since the beginning. They haven't fallen off despite the other teams. They show they want me a lot."
Bell's brother, Dustin Bell, is at UTEP which is a school that has offered Derrius. That is on his mind, but won't be a huge factor.
"They're kind of on my mind because of my brother, but it's not as big of a deal as it once was," Bell said. "He wants me to go after the school that wants me the most. He just told me to do what's best for me."
Bell wants to have a decision made within the first two weeks of the season. He has no visits planned at this time.
