Tennessee Vols signee Harrison Bailey, fresh off winning a Georgia 7A state championship, showed off the skills on Friday night that made him one of the most coveted quarterbacks in the 2020 recruiting class.
Bailey led Marietta High School to a 53-14 win against Eastside Catholic in ESPN’s Geico State Champions Bowl Series on Friday night.
And he made it look easy.
The future Vols signal caller completed 14-of-18 passes for 410 yards and six touchdowns in Marietta’s win.
By the way, Bailey didn’t play in the second half.
The Georgia native, who has the fourth most career passing yards in Georgia high school history (behind Trevor Lawrence, Deshaun Watson and Jake Fromm), looked every bit like a stud quarterback on Friday night. Bailey showed off a big arm that was incredibly accurate. He also showed great pocket awareness.

There are no sure things in college football, but I’d be shocked if Bailey doesn’t develop into one of the best quarterbacks in the country during his time at Tennessee — especially with Vols offensive coordinator Jim Chaney helping him along the way.
Success in football typically begins and ends with the quarterback position.
Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt was wise to target Bailey early and lock him down for the Volunteers.
