Bell Talks K-State Commitment
Demetrius Bell Update!
Posted May 1, 2006
Demetrius Bell out of East high in Olathe, Kan., has given Kansas State his verbal commitment. The 5-foot-9, 165-pound, running back, already had a few scholarship offers under his belt but an unofficial visit to Manhattan was enough for Bell to end his recruitment.
“The energy of Coach (Ron) Prince and Coach (James) Franklin was the main reason that I gave
my verbal commitment.”
“I had scholarship offers from Kansas 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
when he was coaching at Virginia. Coach Prince told me that he’s going to use me the same way he used Pearman.”
Demetrius Bell will be a three-year varsity starter in 2006. He was brought up to the varsity as a sophomore and rushed for 500 yards and six touchdowns.
Bell had a tremendous junior season rushing for 1,800 yards and 25 touchdowns. Demetrius earned honorable mention all-state honors.
We asked Demetrius Bell what the strengths of his game were.
“I think it’s my speed all the way.” Bell said. “I run a 4.4 forty yard dash and I’ve been timed at 10.5 in the 100-meters. I want to hit the weight room in the spring and summer. I’m still a small back and I need to get stronger.”
Demetrius Bell comes from a football family. His father played for
, his grandfather and great uncles all played at
and his cousin, John Williams, played at TCU.
Bell is also solid in the classroom carrying a 3.3 GPA in the classroom and he scored a 25 on his ACT.
