Keion Bell Transfers to Mizzou

Coming out of High School, Keion Bell held offers from Miami (FL), Nevada, Pepperdine, San Diego State, San Francisco, Santa Clara and UNLV.

He ultimately chose Pepperdine and didn't waste time making an impact for the Waves.

After spending three years at Pepperdine, the California native decided to transfer to Missouri to finish out his final year of eligibility.

Bell, mostly known for his vicious and eye-popping dunks, will also be an instant scoring threat out of the backcourt for the Tigers.

In the past two seasons, Bell has averaged 18 points per game on around 42 percent shooting from the field.

Bell visited Missouri this past weekend and enjoyed his visit enough to cancel on the scheduled visit to Texas A&M and give a verbal commitment to the Tigers.

Bell, along with Earnest Ross and George Goode are the recent transfers that have all committed to Missouri. Unfortunately, Bell will have to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules but will be able to play with the 2012 recruiting class that could shape up to be a top 10 class if everything goes as planned for Frank Haith and company.
