Bailey prefers to stay in-state

Quinn Bailey is one of the top offensive linemen in Arizona. Read on for a closer look at his recruitment, his thoughts on Arizona, and more.

Although Gilbert (Ariz.) Higley offensive lineman Quinn Bailey doesn't have many scholarship offers, that figures to change in the coming months because the 6-foot-6, 270-pound junior has the skills and frame of a major college prospect.

The Arizona coaches targeted Bailey early and are hoping the early interest results in a commitment.

"The schools I'm hearing from the most are Arizona, Utah and California," Bailey said. "Arizona has offered me, so I'm very interested in them."

Bailey recently visited Arizona and came away impressed with what he saw.

"I went down there for junior day and it was a lot of fun," he said. "I got to see the coaches and how they run things. They said they love the way I get after it and they feel my style of play fits in well with what they're trying to do right now."

In addition, Bailey has been able to develop a solid relationship with the Arizona coaching staff.

"They're all good guys and I'm in constant contact with them, just trying to develop a relationship with everyone," he said. "Coach Ragle is my lead recruiter and he's doing a great job."

Bailey is not sure what he will be doing this summer, but knows that he wants to stay busy.

"I don't have any future visits scheduled to anywhere, but I want to get back down to Tucson as soon as possible," Bailey said.

"I'm probably going to a few camps this summer, but I don't know at this time which camps I will be attending."

Bailey has a good idea of what he is looking for in a school and it seems that distance will play a major factor.

"I would prefer to stay in-state if possible," Bailey said. "The most important thing for me is to find a place where I feel comfortable.

"I'll go to the best place for me and I would like to go to a school with good football and a good sports medicine department, because that is what I would like to look major in."
