It has been a busy week of recruiting since the Big 12 Championship. The Nebraska coaches have been…
The Next Husker?
Fairview High School (Boulder, CO) running back Kenny Bell came to the Oklahoma game for an unofficial. He didn't have an offer from Nebraska at the time. He just wanted to come in, check it out and see Nebraska play the Sooners. Following that trip, though, an offer he wasn't sure he would get was one he knew he wanted. "I think that Nebraska is a great fit for me. It's close enough to home. I actually know a lot of people originally from Nebraska. I love the coaching staff. I think that it's an awesome fit," Bell told Big Red Report's Bryan Munson following Bell's visit just over a month ago. It's been kind of a waiting game for Bell. He came off a solid senior season for his team, where his squad finished the year 12-1, losing in the semifinals to Pomona High. Bell's waiting came during a season which he missed most of, due to a broken collar bone at the beginning of the season. He would finish his year with 22 carries for two touchdowns and just under 80 yards, 18 receptions for 328 yards and three touchdowns, 35 tackles on defense, as well as two interceptions, one forced fumble, a touchdown on kickoff returns and he even averaged over 41 yards per punt.

You can see why Nebraska went after him, albeit late, joining offers from other places like Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Colorado State and Minnesota. And the Huskers officially offered him last night. "Yeah, Coach Gilmore came in and they offered me. And I am going to take an official visit there this weekend," Bell said of wide receivers coach Ted Gilmore. The question begs, especially after what he's said earlier about the Huskers, since his visit where Nebraska defeated Oklahoma; did he commit or will he on his trip? Bell's reply was simple: "I always promised myself to step off campus before making any decisions. I just want to meet everyone this time around," he said. From his resume, you can figure that schools are recruiting the 6-2, 175 speedster for nearly ever position you could imagine…and you'd be right. But at Nebraska he thinks he'd be a wide receiver as well as a specialist in the return game.
