Terrell Bailey holds offers from both Arkansas and Tennessee, but one offer still eludes him.
That offer is from LSU, which the New Orleans cornerback left the team’s “Boys From The Boot” junior camp event on Saturday coveting more than ever.
Though the 5-foot-11, 175-pound product out of John Ehret High School (Marrero, La.) didn’t receive his third SEC offer, he remains focused on doing whatever it takes in order to eventually secure one.
“I really don’t know (about getting an offer), but they’re going to come see me during the spring at practice,” Bailey told SEC Country.
“I just have to grind hard right now, and when the spring comes around I have to do what I do best and show off.”
It was Bailey’s first visit to Baton Rouge, La., where he spent much of his time with LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond.
The highly touted cornerback said he didn’t receive any major message from the coaching staff, but he didn’t need to; the visit spoke for itself.
“Everything … I just really liked it,” Bailey said. “I got the feeling that it would be a nice school to attend and it would be a nice fit for me for football.”
Bailey is not yet rated, according to the 247Sports composite rankings, but is largely considered one of the premier defensive backs in the New Orleans metro area.
Fittingly, he is just beginning to see his recruitment take off.
He picked up offers from Arkansas and Tennessee in December and January, respectively, and is in no rush to make any decisions just yet.
