WR Stedman Bailey (5-11 185) of Miramar, FL already has an offer from USC and likes what Carolina has to offer. Bailey says he knows that Steve Spurrier is a legend and 'likes to throw the ball around the field."
Stedman plays slot receiver and likes to create mismatches for linebackers. "There are always things to work on," he says, "I am always working on my routes, catching the ball, and getting faster."
Robert Gillespie is his recruiter for the Gamecocks and Bailey says that the coaches have told him he would be a good candidate to replace Kenny McKinley. He says they are similar physically. He runs a 4.46 40.
The Florida receiver has offers from Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Rutgers, South Florida, Florida International, Purdue, Vanderbilt, and Boston College. He has no favorites but intends to take one of his official visits to Columbia.
