From the original commitment article:
A 6’0, 238-pound product of Ridge Point High School, Bailey appeared to be down to Ole Miss and Mizzou, and following the sudden coaching change in Oxford, the Tigers surged into the lead and landed their biggest commitment so far.
He is a fun combination of your prototypical “guy who seeks contact” kind of linebacker and a gliding athlete to gets to where he’s going pretty quickly.
Mizzou has stocked up with exciting linebackers in this class. Can’t wait to see them in action. Welcome, Chad.
