This past season as an 8th grader, Bailey wrapped up a tremendous individual career by helping the Hillgrove Hawks to GMSAA 6A championship by passing for 1,667 yards and rushing for 1,207 and 39 total touchdowns in just eight games. The video game numbers Bailey put up showed that despite now standing 6’3 and 190 pounds, he was more than just a passing QB, but a true dual-threat.

It looks like he will get many more offers in the next four years in High School.

May he never meet a future Von Miller in a game. There was a reason the Ravens cut Michael Orh.

There's a big difference between being tall enough and strong enough and being mature enough. Opposing teams will hate him. His own team mates will hate him. I predict that the linemen on his own team will be throwing a lot of "look out" blocks. That's where they step aside and allow the opposing team's rushers a straight shot while yelling "LOOK OUT!"


Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.

I have no problem with Miami offering the scholarship. I do have a problem that the rules allow Miami to rescind the offer. I believe that he should be allowed to accept the scholarship regardless of what happens between now and his graduation from high school.

I have a problem with him being offered a scholarship so young. Too much pressure on a kid that age to decide his entire future. Too much pressure to be 100% all of the time. Can you imagine what will happen if this kid fails or gets injured? Let him be a kid for a while. If he's that good waiting until he hits high school won't be an issue.

Or maybe he will just opt out of high school...

In most states, California and Connecticut have different rules, the scholarship offer is not binding on the University that makes it. If the athlete accepts, it is not binding.

I don't like that recruiting is getting down to the lower grades - now, seventh grade is as low as it can go, and then the contact must be initiated by the student. (There are ways around that rule.) BTW, the early recruitment of athletes is much more prevalent in women's sports, particular soccer, than in men's. The reason is Title IX - Colleges must spend as much on women's athletics as on men's and the talent pool hasn't grown as rapidly as the college programs.

But my point was, if the college offers an athletic scholarship, at any age, then the offer should be binding on the college, as long as the student meets academic requirements. That would be true, if the student becomes injured. I would make it binding, even if the student decides he doesn't want to play anymore. As it is now, an early offer can be withdrawn right up to the signing of the letter of intent in the student's senior year.

I would not change the student's ability to withdraw a commitment.
