Wake Forest Football: Tyler Bell to transfer for final season

New, 2 comments

The Wake Forest running back was a student assistant coach but wants to try and suit up for his last season of eligibility.

Unfortunately for Wake Forest RB Tyler Bell, Bell’s career didn’t really take off after a strong 2015 season as a true freshman. In 2015, Bell was Wake Forest’s leading rusher as a true freshman with 451 yards on 129 carries while also catching 18 passes for 127 yards. His best game was against Duke in 2015 with 94 yards and a touchdown.

Wake Forest ruled Bell as medically disqualified before the 2018 season and Bell transitioned to a student assistant coach role after tearing his ACL twice in less than two calendar years.

As Bell looks for a new school as a graduate transfer, a quick look back just reminds us about how excited we were for him after his strong freshman year. In 2016, Bell lead the way for our player profiles as he was likely to get most of the carries.

From Blogger So Dear, we wish nothing but the best as Tyler looks for a new school to play his last collegiate season.
