Antowan Bell , a 6-4, 190 pound wide receiver prospect from Overlea High School in Baltimore, Maryland, received scholarship offers from Virginia and Georgia one month ago. He has since earned another scholarship offer, and the team in question has taken a place in Bell’s top three.
“Virginia, Georgia, and Purdue are my top three,” said Bell, who was recently offered by Joe Tiller and the Boilermakers. “All three have offered.”
Bell finished his high school career last week, when Overlea defeated Owings Mills 20-17. Overlea finished the year at 7-3, one game from making the playoffs. Bell finished the year with 57 catches for 914 yards and ten touchdowns.
A leader on the team, Bell was happy with the way the year ended.
“We won, so it was a good way to finish [the year],” said Bell. “I was [a leader for the team]. A lot of the young guys looked up to me.
“We had a good season. It was the best record at this school in like eight years or so.”
With the season over, Bell will now concentrate on choosing a school that’s best for him. He has not scheduled any official visits, but plans to do so in the near future. He does have one unofficial visit planned, however, for the weekend of November 23.
“I didn’t have time [to schedule official visits] during football season,” said Bell. “I am going to Virginia [for an unofficial visit] for the Maryland game. My coach and I are supposed to go to the game.”
Bell likes the Cavaliers quite a bit, as he has been there several times.
“I’ve been to Virginia three times,” said Bell. “I went there for camp and a couple other times. Virginia is in a small town, and I like that.”
Look for more offers to roll in for Antowan Bell over the following months. In addition to taking official and unofficial visits in the recruiting process, the extremely athletic Bell plans on playing varsity basketball for Overlea. He plays the small and power forward positions.
