SOUTH LAFOURCHE COACH DENNIS SKAINS
"Vanderbilt is getting a really quality kid in Bailey. He comes from a great family, has important beliefs, and cares about doing the right thing.
"Bailey loves the game of football. His passion for playing football is almost unmatched. He was a dominant player for us playing left tackle. When we needed yardage, we ran behind Bailey.
"Bailey's a big kid and like most high school players, he's going to have to adjust to the speed and size at the next level. He's not afraid to work so I think he'll really flourish in the structure of a college program."
Selected Vanderbilt over Florida State, Mississippi State, Miami (Fla.) and Arizona among others
