Bell Talks K-State Commitment
"I had scholarship offers from Kansas State, Vanderbilt, Colorado State and Arizona State before I committed.
"Looking back on it, another reason why I committed to Kansas State was because of the offense that Coach Prince is putting in. There will be a two back system implemented. There will be a power back and a scat back. I'm more of the scat back type. It seemed like that offense is going to best fit my style.
"Coach Prince showed me some film of Alvin Pearman when he was coaching at Virginia. Coach Prince told me that he's going to use me the same way he used Pearman."
