Out of Marietta (Georgia) High School, Bailey was rated 4-stars, the No. 3 pro-style quarterback and No. 99 prospect overall in the Class of 2020 on the 247Sports Composite. Bailey picked up 22 scholarship offers, signing with Jeremy Pruitt and Tennessee.
As a freshman, Bailey played in 6 games for the Volunteers during the 2020 season. He was 48-of-68 passing for 578 yards, 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
Josh Heupel was hired by Tennessee ahead of the 2021 season and turned to the transfer portal at quarterback. As a result, Bailey played in just 1 game of the 2021 season.
Bailey entered the transfer portal in 2021 and landed at UNLV for the 2022 season. With the Rebels, Bailey made 6 appearances, going 30-of-58 passing for 218 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.
As a transfer, Bailey was rated 3-stars and the No. 52 QB by 247Sports. The 2020 season does not count against his eligibility and he was able to redshirt in 2021. We’ll see if he can put it together in Louisville playing for Jeff Brohm.
