Rushel Shell goes from bench to 11th-best football prospect in the nation

It’s hard to believe Rushel Shell ever sat the bench in football. But that is where the Hopewell (Aliquippa, Pa.) star running back started his football career: On the bench. In three years as a high school football player, the soon-to-be-senior has rushed for more than 6,700 career yards, including 2,713 yards and 30 rushing touchdowns. Some reports have linked him to Pitt, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and Oregon. Shell said Wednesday he hasn’t really narrowed his college choices yet. (Max Preps)
