Bell earns Elite status

Jake Trotter Modified: April 18, 2013 at 4:36 pm •  Published: July 16, 2009

Sooner QB recruit Blake Bell, the Wichita standout, can add another level of accomplishment to his stud status.
Elite 11 quarterback.
Bell is among 12 quarterbacks picked to participate at the EA Sports Elite 11 camp.
As for the math, 12 QBs/Elite 11, it must require some newfangled calculator. Or the 11 stands for something beyond the number of players in the mix.
But the consensus is that Bell belongs.
Here’s the take of ESPN’s Tom Luginbill on Bell:
“Bell’s physical measurables (6-foot-5, 212 pounds) and upside are enormous. He did not have a great regional workout, but his tape does not lie. He’s been a starter at quarterback for only one season — he was an All-State wide receiver prior to that as a sophomore — but there are lots to work with here.”
Bell will be among some premier QBs at the camp, working alongside, among other touted signal callers, Nick Montana, Joe’s son.
The experience should be invaluable, not only as a checkpoint to measure himself with the nation’s best, but the instruction there is outstanding.
