Tennessee landed another.

The 24th name in the class of 2021 is Trinity Bell — a 6-7 athlete out of Alabama. The three-star athlete announced his commitment on Friday morning with the following video on Twitter.

Bell chose Tennessee over Auburn after narrowing his choices down to two earlier this week. Tennessee was Bell’s first major offer, all the way back in February of 2019.

The 6-7, 250 pound prospect projects as a tight end at the next level, but has also spent time on the defensive line. If he does end up at tight end, it would be the second commitment of the week for the Volunteers at the position. Three-star tight end Miles Campbell committed to Tennessee on Monday.

Jackson Lowe, Sean Brown and Jacob Warren will be on Tennessee’s roster when Bell and Campbell arrive next season, potentially creating a wide open race for playing time.

Bell is the 510th ranked player in the 247Sports Composite rankings and the 20th overall player out of the state of Alabama.

If Campbell is your ‘move’ tight end, then Bell is your redzone mismatch tight end. Doubling as a basketball star, Bell uses that length on the football field to dominate at the catch point. The frame, athletic ability and upside here is intriguing — no matter which side of the ball he ends up on.

Bell is third commitment of the week for Tennessee, joining Campbell and four-star athlete Kaemen Marley. The class remains ranked second in the country, per 247Sports.
