ESPNU Watch List safety Vonn Bell has become one of the nation’s hottest commodities since Georgia offered him his first scholarship in January.

“Everything has been blowing up since,” he said. “I had a good year last year and play in one of the toughest states in the country. There is some good competition out there and I stepped my game up to a different level, and proved that I could play anywhere in the country.”

Bell recorded 180 tackles and six interceptions last season, and Texas took notice by offering him a scholarship last week. The 6-foot, 190-pound Bell had never spoken to any member of Texas’ coaching staff before Feb. 23, but they liked him enough to offer him that day.
