OL Wilson Bell picks the Noles
By Corey Dowlar
Wilson Bell's (Prichard, Ala./M.T. Blount) roller-coaster recruitment finally pulled into the station and reached its conclusion on Wednesday.
After nabbing offers from Auburn, Florida State and Ole Miss in January, the three-star offensive lineman was suddenly faced with a difficult decision. After having taken an official visit to all three schools, and decommitted from UCF, he chose the Seminoles over the two other finalists.
Florida State's sports information department confirmed that Bell's national letter of intent had been received.
While on his visit to Tallahassee, Bell was compared to Rodney Hudson, an underrated offensive lineman from Alabama who went on to be a second-round draft pick to the Kansas City Chiefs.
"They compared me to Rodney Hudson and told me all about his work ethic and the way he came out with low offers into an incredible player, one of the most decorated players that ever played there," he said.
That, combined with his quickly developed relationship with the coaches, won him over.
At 6-foot-4, it is unclear whether Florida State intends to use him as a guard or a tackle on the offensive line.
