Junior wideout Kenny Bell is Alabama's leading returning receiver for 2012.

One of Alabama’s biggest concerns heading into the 2012 season is how it will replace 2011 starting wide receivers Marquis Maze and Darius Hanks—and their combined 219 career receptions.

Rising junior receiver Kenny Bell has caught just 19 passes in his two years at the Capstone, but he enters the fall as the leading candidate to emerge as quarterback A.J. McCarron’s go-to target this season. 

The Rayville (LA) native is the leading returning receiver for Nick Saban’s offense after snaring 17 passes for 255 yards and a pair of touchdown receptions in 2011. 

While those numbers may not strike fear in opposing defenses, Saban called Bell the team’s most consistent playmaker in the spring—which bodes well for fans hoping to see Bell’s production increase exponentially this season. 

So what can fans expect out of Bell this fall? 

Here are four things you need to know about Kenny Bell.
