Romeoville's Bailey a Fast, Aggressive OLB

Midwest Regional Manager
Posted Nov 11, 2011

Caleb Bailey should be one of Illinois' best prospects in the 2013 class.

On film, Caleb Bailey's fast, attacking style stands out and the Romeoville star enjoyed a strong junior season.

"I had 66 tackles, 25 for loss, seven sacks, three forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries," the 6'1, 200-lb outside linebacker said.

His name is just beginning to hit the recruiting radar, but a couple of schools have already made contact.

"Vanderbilt's talking to me a little bit. They invited me to one of their games against Georgia a few weeks ago. I got invited to one of the camps at Nebraska, but I wasn't able to go."

More will undoubtedly come his way once they see his film. When asked about his style of play, Bailey definitely emphasized speed and aggression.

"I don't like people to come to me. I like to get to them before they come towards me. I like to go get them. I blitz a lot, so I get a lot of tackles behind the line and I play fast."
