Indiana recruiting: 2015 LB Markus Bailey breaks down offer

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

2015 Ohio linebacker Markus Bailey received a scholarship from Indiana today. See what the three star prospect had to say about how the offer went down and more.

With the quiet period between college coaches and high school prospects ending this morning, Indiana hit the road just like every other major college football program. The Hoosiers are out visiting with top prospects left on their board and are even handing out offers along the way. Class of 2015 linebacker Markus Bailey received his scholarship from a member of the Hoosier coaching staff earlier this afternoon.

"I normally talk to Coach William Inge but offensive line Coach Ryan Stanchek visited me today. Bailey told The Crimson Quarry. "He told my coach that in was the room with us that Indiana was offering me a scholarship" he added.

Playing for one of the top programs in the state, Hilliard Davidson, Bailey, was a force on the defensive side of the ball for the Wildcats. He finished his junior year with well over 100 tackles, helping Davidson finish with an overall record of 14-1, only losing to future Division 1 state champ, Cincinnati Moeller. One of the top overall prospects in Central Ohio, the Hilliard native is slowly but surely putting together a rather solid list of scholarships, as IU joins Akron, Boston College, Bowling Green and Northwestern as a few of the teams currently after Markus.

The Hoosiers might be a little late to the party when it comes to sending a scholarship, but the IU staff would definitely like to add someone with the skill set of Bailey to the roster. Even though they don't know where they would line him up currently, they aren't afraid to let him know just how much they are interested.

"Coach Stancheck  told me that Coach Inge really likes me because I'm a "football player". He said I'm a kid who plays multiple positions and they don't know where they would want me at yet, but they need football players on defense." The 6-1 205 three star prospect stated.

With junior days right around the corner, Bailey could be on campus in the very near future. When it comes to a visit, Markus mentioned that he has "heard all kinds of great things about how beautiful the campus is and how nice the community is but, of course, I want to see it myself."
