C. J. Bailey (Ath, Moss Point, MS) - C. J. stole the show out of all of the cornerbacks that attended the scout.com combine that was held in Starkville on May 10th.

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 right now?

"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."

CJ is an excellent student, as he carries a 3.5 Core GPA and a 17 on the ACT.
