Stars: 4 – 247Sports Composite / 4 – Rivals / 4 – ESPN
Josh Ward’s Analysis: Bailey was one of the first members of this class for Tennessee and will help fill a position of need. Defensive line is probably the biggest focus for Jeremy Pruitt this year. Bailey, who plans to enroll early, has the size and athleticism Pruitt values.
Eric Cain’s Analysis: I spoke with Bailey last week and he’s pumped to get to Rocky Top. He’s a big believer in Pruitt, Ansley and Rocker and believes the trio can elevate his game at UT. He’s mobile and has an opportunity to play anywhere form a shade to a 7 technique.
