He has parlayed his success from the combines and spring practices with his first scholarship offer, as ULL offered him last night.
"ULL offered me today. Their head coach called me and told
me that I had a scholarship waiting on me. I promise you I will be calling you
in June with two more offers. Coach Luke at Ole Miss told me today that after
I come to his camp, they were going to offer me. I thought I might get that offer
today, but he said that the rest of the coaches needed to see me at the camp before
they formally offered me."
And who is the second school C.J. Bailey
expects to offer?
"MSU. I have not talked to them like Ole Miss, but
their recruiter told me they were going to offer me after they see me at their
camp. He said he had seen what he wants to see, but their DB and head coach wants
to see me in person first."
What does C.J.'s pecking order look like
"I would have to say Ole Miss right now. They are my number
one choice. ULL would be next, then I would have Alabama followed by MSU. In the
Spring, the Alabama coach came down to see one of my practices. But, he did not
follow up with me like the Ole Miss and ULL coaches. I never heard from him again,
but I am going to camp there and rock their boat. I am going to show them what
they are missing."
Where all will Bailey camp at this summer? "I
am going to Ole Miss, MSU, Alabama, and Florida State. That will probably be it."
is an excellent student, as he carries a 3.5 Core GPA and a 17 on the ACT.
