The next time Hakeem Bailey is in Columbus, Ohio, he better be ready to race.

While the class of 2015 recruit was visiting Ohio State, he noticed that the football facility had a list of physical feats that players on last year's team had accomplished.

One number jumped out at the safety: Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller ran the 40-yard dash in 4.32 seconds.

Luckily for Bailey, he wouldn't have to try to bring Miller down to the ground in the race. College defenders have a hard enough time tackling the elusive quarterback, so it would be an enormous challenge for the high school player.
