Two weeks ago Bullis wing Mickey Bell picked up his first offer from Division I program University of Texas-San Antonio.
The 6-foot-5 senior is also seeing interest from VMI, and Campbell, they were at Bullis watching Bell workout last week. He says NJIT will be coming to watch him work out this week.
As of now, he has not yet visited the UTSA campus, but says once he gets his SAT completed, he’ll start thinking about making a visit.
“I definitely plan on it, I’m working on some stuff for school right now with my SAT and stuff,” he said. “But once I get that all figured out I’ll plan that.”
PHM’s 23rd-ranked 2016, Bell spent his offseason playing with DC Premier and Philly Pride.
“I see myself on the court as a guy who just tries to make all of his teammates better, and that’s really what I was effective in doing this offseason,” he said. “In terms of scoring and offense, I consider myself a shooter, and most everyone considers me a shooter, and that’s what I did best.”
The 6-foot-5 wing says he’ll continue to work on his strength and using his body to develop mismatches on the floor.
“I definitely say continuing to get a lot stronger, lifting a lot of weights and learning how to use my body effectively to get to the basket. Whether I have a smaller person on me and I can muscle them, or I have a bigger person on me and I can use my quickness to blow by them — that’s something I really need to continue to work on,” said Bell, who is gearing up for his senior season with the Bulldogs.
“Last year we had a lot of good players, and we had a lot of guys that were natural leaders, and we had a lot of seniors, so I didn’t really have to get things organized and keep guys focused. This year as a senior I’m going to have to take on those responsibilities, along with the other seniors, to make sure the guys on the team are doing what they’re supposed to do.”
