Huskers step up to offer monster OL from Dallas

Talk about a great weekend. You are on an important junior day, unofficial visit to check out Austin. Then when you return you have two new offers from two of the other best teams in the Big XII. What did Curtis Bailey think about Junior Day and what did he learn about his offer from Texas? Also, who are the new teams to step up and offer?

Ho-hum, another weekend and two more offers for Curtis Bailey. The 6-foot-7 and 355 pound offensive tackle from Dallas (Texas) Carter took in a big junior day weekend in Austin and when he got back hadd two packages waiting for him.

"I was in Austin (this weekend)," Bailey said. "I was there to visit Texas during Junior Day. It was good. I enjoyed it. I liked the way that they practiced and the academic part. I liked the facilities and I liked the coaches."

This wasn't the first time in Austin for Bailey, although he hasn't been to UT for a game before. "I haven't been to a game in Austin before, but I have been on the campus before. I went to their camp last summer."

While Bailey was in Austin he earned two new offers from perrennial leaders in the Big XII, but learned some new specifics surrounding the offer that he thought he had received from Texas.

"I got two new offers while I was in Austin. I got an offer from Oklahoma and an offer from Nebraska. On the Texas offer, I misunderstood it. I have talked to the coaches and it isn't an offer yet. They are waiting on my test scores."

The test scores shouldn't be a problem for Bailey who carries a very respectable GPA. "I already have taken the test. I am just waiting on getting the scores back. It should be about three weeks."

While Oklahoma wasn't on his list of previous schools that he was interested in, the offer might change things a little bit. "I really wasn't thinking very high of Oklahoma, because I haven't done any research on them. Now since I have an offer from them I want to look at them and see how it is there."

Nebraska was on the list of teams that Bailey was interested in and their offer really has Bailey thinking about seeing Lincoln. "I like them a lot now. I am planning on taking an official visit there. I am ready to take an official visit there."

"We were talking about taking an unofficial there for the spring game with my uncle and my aunt, but it was probably going to cost too much so we were going to wait on the unofficial. We just don't know yet."

Bailey will be one of the most talked about Seniors this fall in the Dallas metroplex and should be one of the top offensive tackle prospects in the nation. Stay tuned to Big Red Report for the latest on all of your Husker recruiting news.
