Mount Si alum Bell receives college transfer offer, plus last night’s scores……

Good Wednesday morning. No previews for you today so we have a little news for you.

We start with football and we broke this story for you yesterday afternoon here but we have some good news to report on the college recruiting front for a graduate of Mount Si High School’s football program.

Linebacker R.J. Bell, who graduated from MSHS a couple of years ago and is slated to finish up his junior college studies this spring at Shasta College in northern California, announced on Twitter yesterday afternoon a scholarship offer from Adams State University in Colorado, were if he to accept would see him transfer to the NCAA Division II school and play the remainder of his college career there. Adams State is located in Alamosa, which is in the southern part of the state, about a two or so-hour drive southwest of Pueblo.

The school, nicknamed the Grizzlies, is part of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. Their 2020 football season was pushed to this spring, but as of yet they’ve not played any games.

A congrats from us here on the offer.
