Sharrief Metoyer remembers the first time he met Jordan Bell, as an incoming high schooler at Long Beach Polytechnic High School in California. "He was pretty quiet, unassuming, and didn't say much," Metoyer told theScore. "But he was listening." Immediately, he saw a player with immense potential on the court, but someone who needed guidance. Metoyer became not just a head coach to Bell, but a father figure.
