Bio

Kenny Bell is a wide receiver for the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers of the Big Ten Conference. He is a 2014 pre-season All-Big Ten third team selection by Phil Steele.

High School

Bell attended Fairview High School in Colorado. Bell earned first-team All-State honors despite missing most of the 2009 season with an injury. After returning, Bell scored at least one touchdown in each of his first five games back on the field. Fairview finished with a record of 12-1 and made the state semifinals. Rivals.com listed Bell as one of the top 10 players in the state of Colorado.

College

Bell redshirted at Nebraska in 2010. In 2011 he participated in every game and started the final 11 of the season. Bell joined Nate Swift, who accomplished the feat in 2005, as the only Nebraska freshmen to lead the team in catches and receiving yards. Bell’s 32 catches for 461 yards and three touchdowns were the second-best in program history for a freshman. He also contributed an 82-yard touchdown run against the Golden Gophers, the longest run in program history for a freshman.

In 2012 he once again led the way at wide receiver as he tallied a team-high 50 receptions for a team-high 863 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns. The 863 receiving yards were the most ever for a Nebraska sophomore. Both the coaches and the media tabbed Bell as a second-team All-Big Ten selection. In 2012 he became the second fastest Husker receiver ever to reach the 1,000 receiving yards mark.

Bell’s production went down slightly in 2013 but he still finished with a team-high 51 catches for 577 yards and four touchdowns. He played well enough despite dealing with an injury to earn an Honorable Mention All-Big Ten selection by the coaches and media.
