BANGOR – Former Skowhegan wide receiver Jon Bell had been slated to play football for the University of Maine, but now he is taking his talents elsewhere.
Bell declared his intentions to play football for Division III Husson University, telling ABC 7 and Fox 22 he was in the process of enrolling in the program. He said he would not be playing at Maine due to personal reasons, and UMaine confirmed he was no longer part of the team, which he had been scheduled to be a walk-on for.
“New team same dream.. gotta be me and still do my thing,” Bell said in a tweet this past weekend, before catching an 84-yard touchdown pass in the Lobster Bowl.
Husson was unable to confirm he would be coming to Bangor at this time, as he is not officially part of the program.
