Round Rock (Texas) Stony Point running back Cameron Bell has a lot of possibilities in his college future.
His coach, Craig Chessher, says that his 6-foot-2, 210-pound running back has been getting looks at both offense and defense. While Bell is a tough, hard-nosed, big back with the ball, he could also be a very solid linebacker at the next level. Schools like Texas, Texas A&M, Louisville, Boston College, and others have shown interest enough on both side sof the ball.
"I think it's his physical size that stands out," Chessher said. "He's a 4.5-second 40-yard dash runner. He's a back that is going to be tough to stop in the fourth quarterback. At running back, he's not a make-you-miss guy, but he's not a big cumbersome running back where he just stumbles and bumbles down the field."
Bell has not accumulated any offers, but tons of interest from teams in and outside of the state. Texas assistant coach Gene Chizik is one that has been in contact with Chessher about Bell.
"I'm not sure what their interest level is right now, but they were looking at him at linebacker," Chessher said. "I don't believe, with the way things are there, that he is a tailback possibility.
"I don't know what the chances are that he'll get an offer from them just yet."
Chessher says that there is one school that could be close to offering, but nothing in writing has come yet.
"I'm trying to make sure we get him in the right place not just that he can make it at athletically, but academically," Chessher said. "He's going to qualify, but he's still working pretty hard."
