ROSSVILLE, Ga. (TFP) -- With National Signing Day less than a week away, the rush of coaches trying to sway Ridgeland High All-America safety Vonn Bell is reaching its peak. Coaches from all three of Bell's finalists — Alabama, Ohio State and Tennessee — are scheduled to be in town Thursday to make their final pitch for his signature.
College coaches are not allowed to have contact with recruits after this weekend, giving prospects a three-day period of silence to make their decision before Wednesday morning. The head coaches from Bell's finalists have already used their one allotted personal visit with Bell, but assistants from all three of his finalists will meet with him Thursday.
