Two-way standout Isaac Bailey III, who starred at running back and defensive back for Nature Coast, has accepted a scholarship offer to play for ASA College according to Sharks' assistant coach Rob Kazmier.
Bailey is being recruited by ASA as a defensive back. Kazmier said that ASA "loved Isaac's speed and athleticism."
Bailey rushed for 1,331 yards and 11 touchdowns on 179 carries -- an average of 7.4 yards a touch -- for 5-5 Nature Coast in 2010. He finished the season as the leading rusher on the North Suncoast. At defensive back, Bailey had 19 tackles, an interception, a fumble recovery and two caused fumbles.
Bailey was selected the Florida Athletic Coaches Association District 8 MVP, and he was a St. Petersburg Times' All-North Suncoast first team pick at running back after his senior season.
