Tigers part of Bailey's most interested list

May 19, 2014 

OL Zack Bailey of Summerville has made several visits to USC of the east. He has now set plans to visit USC of the west. Bailey said he will visit Southern Cal on June 25th as part of a camp he will be attending. That will be the only visit he'll make while on the West Coast. Southern Cal and Miami are his two most recent offers.

Bailey said he will also take offers this summer to Georgia, Auburn, Florida and perhaps a couple of others he hasn't visited.

Clemson and USC remain in regular contact with Bailey. Tony Elliott of Clemson and Shawn Elliott of USC are keeping in touch and keeping their programs in the running.

"I talked to coach Elliott (Clemson) just about every day," Bailey said. "I need to get up there, I know that. He wants me to come up there and see the campus. And I think I might take in that O-line camp (at USC) sometime soon, I think in July. We've done that the past three years." Bailey attended USC's last home baseball game with one of the Summerville baseball players and had the chance to talk with Elliott then.

Bailey said the schools he currently is most interested in are Clemson, USC, Georgia, Florida, Auburn and Southern Cal. He doesn't have a favorite and he would like to make his decision before his season if he can.

"I want to make sure that the school that I pick, I'm 100 percent," Bailey said. "When I commit to that school I want to make sure it's the right school for me. This decision is going to dictate the rest of my life so I need to make sure I take it slowly and I'm 100% committed to the team that I choose. I want to make sure I don't have any second thoughts about it and I want to make sure this is the right place that's going to be for me."
