Ohio State Buckeyes Land Star Safety Recruit Vonn Bell

The Ohio State Buckeyes bolstered their 2013 recruiting class by landing Ridgeland High School’s Vonn Bell. Bell is a five-star safety that had been considering Tennessee, Alabama and Ohio State. All three schools were hoping to land the 6-foot-1, 190-pound safety, but Urban Meyer and company were able to lure him to Columbus.

It is a major get for the Buckeyes, who are looking to bring SEC caliber talent to the Big Ten.

Bell goes to high school in Georgia and lives in Tennessee, but that didn’t stop him from making the jump to Ohio State.

Ohio State currently has a top five recruiting class and Bell solidifies that status.

Bell joins an incredible defensive backfield class that is coming in to Columbus in 2013 and brings them some versatility.

Urban Meyer has always been one of the best recruiters in college football and he is putting that on display once again. The Buckeyes have to be ecstatic about landing a player like Bell. Now it is time for Michigan to play catch up.
