Bailey Looking Into Home Visits

Ollie Bailey of the Illinois Wolves program is one strong dude. He's also being chased by a number of schools around the country.

Ollie Bailey gets after it in the weight room. That's right; he's a warrior on the court and off it. His bench press? Try 320 pounds. That's some serious stuff for a high school basketball player.

The Chicago standout has drawn attention from Fresno State, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Florida State and Purdue. So far, Fresno, Seton Hall and Rutgers have offered, according to Bailey.

While he hasn't set up any visits, he'll make that happen in the next few weeks and the schools are setting up home visits at this time.

With his current school list, it looks like he's headed out of Chicago. "Yeah, pretty much. Chi-Town is a tough place to live."

Bailey, like most recruits, put a big premium on his relationship with the head coach that is recruiting him. "I've got a chance to have a good relationship with the head coach. That's the guy that's going to put me into the game so I look into that."
