2025 3-Star OT Planning OV After Receiving WVU Offer



WVU Football OT target Justin Bell

As the WVU football staff continues to search for future anchors of their offensive line, they sent an offer to a three-star recruit from Michigan.

Justin Bell (6-foot-8, 295 pounds), who has experience at both left and right tackle, announced his West Virginia offer on Thursday night. Bell, a 2025 prospect, attends Dakota High School in Macomb, Mich.

WV Sports Now talked to Bell about what he heard from the WVU coaches, in particular offensive line coach Matt Moore, as well as his overall recruitment.

“They basically told me they loved my film and when Coach (Matt) Moore came to my school to watch me workout, he was really impressed and he wants to set up an OV,” mentioned Bell.

Bell also revealed that he plans to schedule his official visit trip to Morgantown for July 7-9.

Ranked within the top 20 Michigan players, Bell has been awarded three stars by both On3 Sports and 247 Sports. On3 even ranks Bell as No. 15 in his class in the state and the No. 54 offensive tackle in the country.

Projected to eventually commit to Indiana by multiple recruiting outlets, Bell also has offers from Army, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Cornell, Eastern Michigan, Howard, Kansas, Kent State, Massachusetts, Toledo, Western Michigan and Yale. And to fully paint the picture of how much Bell’s stock is growing, his Kansas offer came earlier in the week and Auburn, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Purdue and Rutgers have shown some interest.

Bell already has an official visit booked with Indiana for May 31-June 2 after already recently visiting in April.
