Ohio State tight ends coach Keenan Bailey was the victim of a carjacking on Monday in Cleveland while on a recruiting trip to Ginn Academy. Bailey confirmed Tuesday that he was fine following the incident, tweeting out a picture of himself in Canada.
According to a report from Cleveland.com, Bailey was robbed at gunpoint and had his Dodge Durango stolen by four youths, ages 15 to 18, that were later arrested after a police chase. The carjacking happened around 2 p.m. on Monday in the parking lot of Ginn Academy, an all-boys school founded by Ted Ginn Sr., head football coach at Glenville High School.
Ohio State has showed a strong connection with Cleveland – and specifically Glenville – as of late, with freshman linebacker Arvell Reese and expected 2024 signees Bryce West and Damarion Witten all hailing from Glenville, which recently won the school’s second state championship.
