Thad Matta picks up a quick verbal from the third member of the 2014 class, as Garfield Height’s David Bell commits following his visit.
Bell, a 6′ 7″ forward, was on campus yesterday for a visit, and received his official offer today. He accepted shortly thereafter.
Bell is averaging 17. 3 points a game to go with 4.6 blocks and 8.1 rebounds per contest. He’s been on the Buckeyes’ radar for a while, and is currently rated as a three star recruit by several services. Again, at this point he’s only in his junior season, so there’s a tremendous upside for the young man.
His interest list included DePaul as well as a number of smaller schools in Ohio (Dayton, Cleveland State, Miami of Ohio). After the jump, check out his work in last summer’s “Flyin’ To The Rim” competition.
