Auburn sits at the top for Sunshine State DB
T'Sharvan Bell.One of the top performers at Auburn's camp last week was Seminole (Fla.) Osceola's
The 6-foot, 170-pounder, who has offers from Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, NC State and Michigan State among others, was one of the better cornerbacks in attendance.
"It went very good. I had a great time," Bell said.
Bell spoke with Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville, recruiting coach Terry Price and defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Will Muschamp while in Auburn.
"I liked the coaches, the players, the facilities, everything really," Bell said. "I really liked all of the coaches. Coach Muschamp and Coach Price are really straight-forward guys, real cool and honest."
Bell also had the chance to check out the campus and facilities during his visit, and admits he was a little surprised.
"That was my first time in Auburn. It was really good, better than I expected," said Bell. "The sports complex, I was like 'wow'. I went inside the stadium, too. It was cool, too."
Following the camp and visit, the Tigers appear to have a solid hold on Bell's No. 1 spot.
"Auburn is my No. 1 team right now," Bell said. "Before the camp I was pretty sure they would be No. 1, but afterwards there's no doubt. I like the coaches, the environment everyone in that town supports the football team.
Bell said he plans to visit Georgia Tech and Clemson in July, and already has set at least two more trips to the Plains.
"I'm going to Auburn's first game for an unofficial visit, and I'm going to take an official visit there, too," Bell said. "Behind Auburn (in my top five) would be Georgia Tech, Clemson, West Virginia and South Carolina."
Although the Tigers have a firm hold on the top spot, Bell said he isn't in a hurry to commit.
"I'm going to wait it out," he said. "I'm not in a hurry."
