Tom Hauck/ESPNHSMichigan WR target Alvin Bailey said he wants to trim his list of schools to eight on Sunday.BRADENTON, Fla. – ESPN 150 athlete Alvin Bailey (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) just wrapped up a trip of schools that included visits to Notre Dame, Michigan and Clemson. The 6-foot, 175-pound junior described what he liked about each program.
Notre Dame: “It’s a very tradition-oriented school. I saw a lot of religious people walking around there, like a lot of nuns and other people involved with the church. Overall it was a laid-back place, though. Everyone was happy. I met with the academic advisor and he was great. He laid out everything for me and it’s a school with great academics and great athletics."
Michigan: “As soon as we got into town we could see the JumboTron with the big M and the stadium. And it’s the biggest stadium I’ve ever stepped foot in. I took a picture next to the JumboTron and then went inside talked to the coaches. The coaches were a lot of fun and I saw some of the facilities, like the weight room and stuff, before meeting with the academic advisor."
