Bailey, Day still on Rivals' Top 250 list

Bailey, Day still on Rivals' Top 250 list recently released its updated list of the top 250 high school football players in the country for the Class of 2013.

Two Illinois commits stayed on the list, but fell a few spots.

Bolingbrook (Ill.) High School senior quarterback Aaron Bailey, who missed half the season with a sprained MCL in his right knee, dropped to No. 160. The dual-threat quarterback was ranked at No. 147 when the rankings were last updated in late August.

Darby (Ohio) High School senior Caleb Day checked in at No. 213. In August, Day was slotted in at No. 211.

The athlete, who saw time in the backfield, at wide receiver and in the defensive secondary for the 11-1 Panthers, compiled 463 rushing yards and nine touchdowns, 490 receiving yards on 32 catches and six touchdowns, and 45 tackles, five interceptions and two fumble recoveries on defense this past year.

Besides Bailey, Illinois had five high school players represented on the list, but all five are going somewhere besides Illinois.

Laquon Treadwell, the gifted wide receiver from Crete-Monee who will most likely choose between Mississippi, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Michigan, landed at No. 10 on the rankings.

Ty Isaac, the running back from Joliet Catholic who is committed to USC, came in at No. 20.

Lemont's Ethan Pocic, the younger brother of Illinois offensive lineman Graham Pocic who is going to LSU, checked in at No. 44.

Kyle Bosch, an offensive lineman from Wheaton St. Francis who committed to Michigan, is at No. 99, and Logan Tuley-Tillman, an offensive lineman from Peoria Manual who will join Bosch at Michigan, rated at No. 245.
