Demitrius Bell has decommitted from Michigan State and several schools have shown interest in the 4-star athlete. This is a huge loss for the Spartans 2023 class. With the Spartans’ staff feeling confident in the position their wide receiver room is in, the plan was to take a very small amount of receivers this cycle. However, after losing their priority at that position, they are left with zero wide receiver commits four months away from signing day.

After an impressive start to his senior season, the talented playmaker has announced a top six of Kentucky, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Alabama, LSU, and Georgia.

Kentucky is a newer team to the mix, but a very important one nonetheless. As they look for another wide receiver this class, the Wildcats have turned up the heat on Demitrius Bell following his decommittment from Michigan State and could be the team to beat early. Kentucky has well-known connections to his training group, NPA, and the Nashville area, including landing high profile wideouts Barion Brown and Shamar Porter. Based on people we have talked to, Kentucky is one of the main teams to watch here.

Ole Miss has always liked Demitrius Bell, but following the decommittment, they are stepping up their push. Lane Kiffin’s offense is attractive to all skill players, and that is no exception to the talented Bell. Ole Miss will need to make up ground and get him on campus for a gameday visit but they are in the mix for him. The Rebels could be a team that rises into the mix as time passes.

Tennessee and Alabama were once linked as possible schools with a chance to flip Bell but have taken a step back recently. LSU offered Demitrius Bell on April 5th and has always been on his radar, but a visit has yet to happen. Georgia made his top schools list despite not yet offering the 4 star.

Following the decommitment, Bell is not looking to rush into a decision as he looks to find his next home. As of right now, Bell has not scheduled any visits per source. As he starts to schedule gameday visits, schools will have the valuable chance to leave an impression on the talented athlete. There’s been some rumors of him wanting to stay in the southeast area, where it is closer to home, and the entirely SEC based top schools list seems to validate that rumor. Kentucky has made a strong push immediately following the decommitment announcement, but this will be one they will have to continue to recruit up until signing day.
