(CBSSports.com/Jeff Goodman) -- Keion Bell wants to play at a higher level.
The 6-foot-3 Pepperdine guard, who has just one year left of eligiblity, has decided to transfer from the Waves after a difficult season marred by injuries and a suspension.
Bell is explosive and can score the ball. He averaged 18.9 points in 20 games last season and has scored 1,365 points in his three-year career.
Bell told CBSSports.com he will visit Missouri Sunday and he is hoping to take a trip to Texas A&M later this month. Oregon is also involved.
“It’s not that the WCC is a bad conference,” Bell said. “But it doesn’t compare to the Big 12.”
