Isaiah—Does His Name Ring a Bell?

Bennett KaplanCorrespondent IJanuary 22, 2009

Along with Craig Roh, Tate Forcier, Anthony LaLota, Taylor Lewan, and all of Michigan's other top recruits, Isaiah Bell has failed to get the attention as the previously mentioned recruits.

As listed by Scouts inc. Bell is the No. 11 safety in the country, and Michigans second ranked recruit. 

Bell is the 95th overall recruit in ESPNU's top 150, and at 6'1, 210 pounds, and is a force to be reckoned with in the secondary.

Bell, who recorded 36 tackles in 2007 , while intercepting 4 passes at free safety, can also return kicks, and has the speed to do so.

Although he brings a dominating presence to the secondary, Bell is projected to switch to linebacker once he comes to Michigan. With his size, and abilities, he seems more fit to play linebacker anyways. If in fact he does switch positions, he would become only the second linebacker in the '09 recruiting class.

Bell, depending on what position he chooses, will get playing time in '09, weather its at safety, or linebacker. 

Bell has been committed since March of '08, and will get his chance to play in the Big House, and is just one more great piece of the 2009 Michigan recruiting class.
