Florida picks up N.J. defensive back

8/12/2012

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida picked up its third commitment of the day when cornerback prospect Tre' Bell verbally committed to the Gators after their spring game on Saturday.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound athlete, who also had offers from Michigan, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Nebraska, said Florida just felt like the right fit for him.

"Me and my family came down here and we just fell in love with it," Bell said. "They were already my top school but we just fell in love with it down here. We had a chance to see everything we needed to see. How they play their corners, how they will treat me, and we felt very comfortable. I felt comfortable enough to make a commitment to them."

Following Florida's annual spring football game on Saturday, Bell decided to go ahead and end his recruiting process.

"I told [Will] Muschamp and he was very excited about it. I'm excited to be a Gator," Bell said. "They were congratulating me and welcoming me to the family."
