A top USC target, WR Jaheim Bell of Valdosta, GA, announced Thursday a decommitment from Florida. Bell had been committed to the Gators since April 13th. “This is a business decision, so I want to make sure I make the right one,” Bell wrote on Twitter. “Choosing a school and program is a life changing and important decision that will affect my future. I need to make sure I make the best decision for me and my family. Florida is still a top school for me.”
Bell took an official visit to USC June 8th.
“The players really stood out,” Bell said. “I feel like I fit in with them. They are really cool. They took me in like I’m on the team.”
Bell could play tight end at the next level but said the Gamecocks and others have recruited him as a receiver. Last season he caught 70 passes for 800 yards and 14 touchdowns.
