On Monday, rising senior Trinity Bell of Albertville took to his Twitter account at @OfficialTrinnn to list what he described as his “Final Five” schools in his recruitment to play college football.
The 6-foot-7, 255-pound Bell named Auburn, Tennessee, Florida, Kentucky and Central Florida as his leaders, eliminating Indiana, Purdue and Nebraska from his top eight, which he announced in April.
Tennessee’s Jeremy Pruitt is the only head coach who has come to Albertville to visit Bell. Pruitt, the son of former AHS coach Dale Pruitt, gave Bell his first scholarship offer in football.
In 2019, Bell returned to football for the first time since middle school. On offense, he caught 26 passes for 415 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, he collected 28 tackles, six tackles for loss, two sacks and seven hurries.
He caused two fumbles and recovered one fumble. He scored one defensive touchdown on a fumble recovery.
“Trinity trimmed his list to five,” Aggie head coach Cliff Mitchell said. “He has a chance to do something special, and we are so proud of him.”
Mitchell doesn’t know a timetable for when Bell might announce his commitment.
“Trinity is feeling the schools out and wants to make sure it’s the right fit,” Mitchell said. “It’s a big decision for him.”
In other Aggie recruiting news, Mitchell reported Birmingham-Southern has offered Jackson Godwin while Arkansas-Monticello has extended an offer to Chi Jordan. Both players are rising seniors.
