The first few hours of National Signing Day involved some of the best players in the country choosing to go to SEC schools, but Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes were able to pry a couple players out of SEC country.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Bell, from Georgia, is considered the No. 29 prospect in the country according to 247Sports.com, and is ranked as the third-best safety prospect in the nation.
Ohio State also got a commitment from four-star wide receiver James Clark, who had been considering Urban Meyer's old school, Florida, but ended up faxing in his letter of intent to Ohio State. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound receiver out of New Smyrna Beach, Fla., is ranked as the No. 25 receiver in the 2013 class.
Bell and Clark are the newest members of an Ohio State class that is already considered one of the best in the country. The Buckeyes 2013 class trails only Alabama in the 247Sports.com class rankings.
