Christian Bell in action

Alabama landed one of the state's top rising seniors on Wednesday evening in Hoover (Ala.) defensive end Christian Bell. Scout/BamaMag has seen him in action several times over the last few months, and you can get a free look at the three-star in big game as well as camp action inside.

Christian Bell told BamaMag.com that he "just had that feeling" on Saturday when he knew he wanted to commit to Alabama while in town for A-Day.

He ultimately waited a few days before driving back to Tuscaloosa with his mother to deliver the news, but pulled the trigger to Nick Saban and company on Wednesday, becoming the 15th commitment in the class of 2015 for the Crimson Tide.

Bell has helped Hoover (Ala.) High to a pair of undefeated, state championship seasons over the last two years, and Scout has a look at some footage from the campaign below.

Below is Bell and Hoover against rival Opelika (Ala.) High on Halloween night 2013, to which he helped shut down then Alabama commitment (and eventual Auburn signee) Stephen Roberts and company to close out another perfect regular season.

More than a month later, and still perfect, Bell and Hoover were tasked with stopping five-star Tide signee Rashaan Evans and Auburn (Ala.) High in the state title game. The Bucs did, and Bell had two big sacks in the Super Six victory.

In preparation for his senior season, Bell and the rest of the state's best competed in the Nike Football Training Camp in Birmingham in late March. The newest Tide commitment went up against some of the South's top offensive linemen with success on this day.
