WVU OL Target Justin Bell Selects Michigan State Over Mountaineers



WVU Football OT recruit Justin Bell

A WVU target picks Michigan State over West Virginia for the second straight day. This time, it’s Justin Bell announcing his commitment to join the Big Ten instead of the Big 12 with the Spartans on Wednesday.

He narrowed down his list to Michigan State, Indiana and WVU earlier in the week.

Bell (6-foot-8, 295 pounds), who has experience at both left and right tackle, attends Dakota High School in Macomb, Mich.

West Virginia offered Bell on May 17 and the staff got the OT on campus just a few weeks later.

“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,” Bell said to WV Sports Now.

“I’m looking for a program that wants me and not just a backup option. I also want to feel comfortable at a college and be able to call it my second home and just want to have an all-around great culture,” he added.

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.
