North Texas Offers Bishop Gorman’s Judah Bell
Tyler Bishop Gorman junior receiver Judah Bell's eventful offseason continued Thursday with his eighth Division I FBS offer.
Bell (6-3, 180) announced via Twitter that North Texas became the latest school to target the Crusaders' standout.
In addition to North Texas, Bell also holds offers from Bowling Green, Houston, Kansas, Navy, SMU, Louisiana-Lafayette, and UTSA.
The Mean Green have now reached out to five prospects in East Texas' 2017 class -- Bell, Liberty-Eylau DE and Texas pledge Lagaryonn Carson, Henderson WR and SMU commit Trestan Ebner, John Tyler WR and Texas commit Damion Miller, and John Tyler QB/ATH Bryson Smith.
North Texas recently hired Seth Littrell as its new head coach after his predecessor, Dan McCarney, was let go during the 2015 season. Littrell was previously an assistant at North Carolina, Indiana, Arizona, Texas Tech, and Kansas.
UNT is a member of Conference USA, and is coming off a 1-11 campaign last season. North Texas currently has 10 players on its roster from East Texas.
Bell had a stellar junior season for Gorman, finishing with 68 catches for 1,350 yards and 16 touchdowns in 10 games. The Crusaders were 8-2 and reached the bi-district round of the TAPPS Division II playoffs.
Like all recruits entering their senior season, Bell can officially sign with the school of his choosing on Feb. 1, 2017.
