Maggie Bair: When Maggie first stepped on the court for Glenbard South High School’s varsity basketball team as
a freshman in 2015, it was immediately clear that she was special. The forward scored 15 points and pulled down 20
rebounds in one of the first games of her high school career, and she went on to average over 10 PPG and an areabest
11.5 RPG that season. Maggie was even better as a sophomore, putting up 13 PPG and 12 RPG before
flaunting her versatility by winning Illinois’ “Queen of the Hill” state three-point competition in the spring of 2017.
However, the action surrounding Maggie’s recruitment during her first two years of high school did not reflect
either the skill or potential Bair showcased on the court. It wasn’t until the summer of 2017 that Maggie, while
playing up a year with Mercury Elite 17U Ralston on the travel circuit, began to receive serious attention from
college coaches. The momentum began with a full scholarship offer from division two Saginaw Valley State
University, a school that has had recent success recruiting players in the western suburbs of Chicago. A few weeks
later, division one Youngstown State offered Maggie a scholarship while hosting her family on an unofficial campus
visit. Though several other programs began recruiting Maggie hard by the end of the summer, her recruitment took
a backseat to her all-state volleyball campaign in the fall of 2017. During this time, she visited only one school, and
she scheduled that visit because the school’s proximity to her home minimized the strain that the visit placed on
her in-season schedule. That school was Drake University.
On that early-November visit, Maggie and her family fell in love with Drake. Her final commitment did not
ultimately come until a month and a half later, but during that period of time, Drake’s coaching staff only further
emphasized their interest in Maggie. “The coaches made me feel so wanted”, said Bair after announcing her
commitment. “They made me feel like a part of a family”. Even though it will be nearly two years before Maggie
puts on a Drake uniform, she is confident that now was the right time to make her commitment. “I knew that
Drake was the perfect fit, so what was the point of waiting any longer?”. With Maggie’s commitment, all three of
the Bair siblings will be college athletes. Her oldest brother, Billy, plays football for Illinois State, while older
brother Charlie is a freshman basketball player at Illinois Wesleyan.
