Rutgers currently has three committed players in the 2025 recruiting class. Two players have verballed this month in three-star linebacker Talibi Kaba (the No. 12 player in New Jersey who holds offers from Boston College, Duke and Iowa State) and three-star offensive lineman Jayden Elijah (whol holds offers from Florida State, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M)

The last time Bell was on campus was in mid-October when Rutgers scored three touchdowns in the second half to complete an incredible 27-24 comeback win over Michigan State.

He talked with Rutgers Wire about that win and his experience visiting the Scarlet Knights for gameday:

“It was great. We were dancing in the rain during the comeback,” Bell told Rutgers Wire after his visit.

“And dancing in the locker room after the game. I had a lot of fun.”

Rivals also ranks Bell as a three-star.
