Bailey says Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Institute of Technology, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennesseeas well as UKFwere some of the programs that achieved. When asked about the overall experience, Bailey said: “It was good. This experience made me realize that I really needed. That was one of my goals that I wanted to achieve.”

Bailey says that because many schools are aggressively pursuing him, he is in the process of narrowing things down.

“A lot of schools are calling, so I’m still trying to think,” Bailey says. “This is what I will study with my family when I learn more about schools. I dealt with high school and it has been so far. As soon as I know more about the schools, it will help me when it comes to my decision.”

Auburn, Kentucky and Tennessee are already a priority for the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Bayley, who received a five-star rating, is ranked 11th in the 247Sports National Player Rankings for 2024.
