Sporting News: OU quarterback recruit Blake Bell an ‘eye-popper’
Yesterday, I wrote about how OU commitment Blake Bell had fallen in Rivals’ latest ratings.
Well, today, he was vindicated by The Sporting News, which actually puts quite an emphasis on its recruiting rankings (in other words, this isn’t some guy in a cubicle putting these ratings together).
Bell hit the board at No. 20 in TSN’s first set of 2010 recruiting rankings, and is ranked as the second QB.
Said TSN, “Has upside that would make just about any college coach’s eyes pop out; still improving.”
I think that’s a fair assessment. Bell, at 6-6, 215, has all the tools to be a big-time QB. He just needs to continue to develop, which he’ll do at OU under offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson and QB coach Josh Heupel.
Some other notables from the TSN ratings:
*OU commitment Bronson Irwin of Mustang, an offensive lineman, was rated No. 51 overall. That’s really high for Irwin, considering he’s been nowhere to be found on other recruiting service ratings.
*Tight end Xavier Grimble of Bishop Gorman, who chose USC over OU, is rated No. 19 and is by far the top tight end rated.
*Instate star DeMarco Cobbs of Tulsa Central is No. 10. TSN writes that OU “is the school to beat” to land him.
*Texas QB commitment Connor Wood is ranked No. 83.
*The Sooners are in on several other guys on the list, but no other commitments besides Bell and Irwin made the Top 100.
