North Carolina A&T has put several players in the NFL over the past couple years, and this year another will come out of the HBCU powerhouse. Elijah Bell aka “Mini Moss” is one of the best players in the MEAC.
You may not know who Elijah Bell is but take notes folks, because he is the real deal. He is 26 receptions to become the All-Time Leader in receptions pasing Herbert Harbison and Wallace Miles. Add in the fact he needs 173 yards to become the All-Time leading receiver in yards passing Harbison. He already shares the touchdown record with Denzel Keyes and is the schools record holder for touchdown receptions in a season hauling in 11.
Remember the kid because he is built like a linebacker. He boxes out defensive backs and comes down with the ball. He enters the season as a three-time All-MEAC selection and won MEAC Rookie of the Year in 2016. He is not a sleeper in my mind, but many have no clue who he is.
I wanted to showcase him in an article because he is a special player with big time playmaking ability. During his career, N.C. A&T has won two MEAC championships, two HBCU national titles and have won two Celebration Bowl games. You better pay attention folks, because he is a dawg.
