2014 three-star offensive tackle Quinn Bailey picked up his seventh offer yesterday, as Scout.com’s Jason Jewell reports that the Oregon Ducks offered Bailey yesterday. It is still very early in his recruitment and Bailey currently has no leans, but the Arizona Wildcats look to be in a great position early on. Bailey is a nice in-state prospect for Arizona from Gilbert, AZ, and the Wildcats offered early, as they extended an offer to Bailey back in early February on a junior day visit.
Bailey’s seven offers come from the Arizona State Sun Devils, Utah Utes, Washington Huskies, Oregon, Arizona, Northern Colorado, and New Mexico State. There are several rivalries at play in Bailey’s recruitment, with the in-stat one between Arizona and Arizona State being one to watch closely.
Oregon doesn’t offer early, so the fact that they have offered a small prospect in Bailey at this point shows that he is indeed a diamond in the rough. He has a nice list of Pac-12 offers, and more should be on the way. Oregon’s offer from Bailey is huge, and it will be interesting to watch the Ducks and Washington Huskies in the northwest compete for a three-star OL in the southwest.
The 6’6″, 270 pound Higley High star has great size, and he certainly comes off as an underrated three-star prospect. Scout.com ranks Bailey as the 78th-best offensive tackle in the class, and he is arguably one of the top 20 recruits in the state of Arizona. Oregon’s offer is a game-changer, and Bailey is a prospect to keep close tabs on following plenty of recent offers from the likes of Oregon. Major programs are starting to take more looks and Bailey, and the offers are set to steadily come in. In-state rivals Arizona and Arizona State are the two schools to keep closest tabs on, as it seems like he wants to stay in the state of Arizona. However, an offer from Oregon could change things, and the same goes for heavier pursuit from other schools.
