The Ohio State football program will host several outstanding prospects on unofficial visits on Saturday but before the weekend rolled around, the Buckeyes hosted four-star safety Vonn Bell on a mid-week unofficial visit. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound prospect out of Rossville (Ga.) Ridgeland arrived in Columbus early on Thursday morning and wrapped up his time on campus on Thursday night. BuckeyeGrove.com caught up with Bell shortly after leaving Ohio State.

"It was good," said Bell of the trip. "I got to visit with coach Urban Meyer and everything so it was a real good experience."

Ohio State didn't have a full spring practice today as the players had meetings and were in the weight room lifting. Even though Bell didn't get to see a practice, he got to see just about everything else that Ohio State had to offer.

"I got to spend a lot of time with coach Urban Meyer," he explained. "I was also with coach (Everett) Withers a lot. We also met a lot of people today, I got to meet some of the players. I got to see everything, the campus, the players, the coaches; I got to see how everything goes. It was just a good chance to meet the head coach and everything."

The athletic safety said meeting Meyer was the highlight of his trip to Columbus.

"My favorite part of the trip was just meeting coach Urban Meyer," Bell said. "He's just an awesome coach that seems to be really close to the players and everybody and he just makes you feel at home. He's a good coach."

Bell will leave Columbus early on Friday morning and while he isn't claiming any favorites right now, he does hold Ohio State in high regard.

"It's a high interest for Ohio State," he said. "I really can't come out with a list right now though. A lot of schools are trying to take their shot at me so I really can't say right now (that he has any favorites)."

When it comes to making a decision, Bell pointed to the relationships that he is trying to build as the main selling point.

"Every school is going to have a good campus and every school is going to have good academics," he said. "It's really the people around you. Are they going to take care of you, you want to surround yourself with good people."

Bell added that he has no set timetable for a decision and will simply make his choice whenever he feels ready to do so.
