NORMAN, Okla. -- Three years ago, the Detroit Tigers were so intrigued with Blake Bell's arm, they picked him in the 43rd round of the MLB draft.
Never mind Bell wasn't a baseball player. Hadn't thrown a fastball in years.
Lately, Bell has intrigued with his wheels. But this spring as he will battle to become Oklahoma's next starting quarterback, Bell is ready to remind everyone about his arm -- which was the reason the Tigers drafted him. And the reason the Sooners recruited him.
