Today I interviewed Mychal Bailey who signed with UK in the 2010 recruiting class. There has been a lot of speculation about his eligibility, but Bailey informed me he is taking two summer classes and plans to enroll at the end of July. He said, "it's been a journey, but I still have work to do."
Bailey told me the staff talked to him about playing safety and returning kicks. He runs a 4.3 forty-yard dash time. Bailey is 6'0" and 194 lbs and can power clean 325lbs. When asked about his style of play he said, "I have the complete package. I can hit, cover and use my speed."
I asked Bailey about the recruiting process and learned he was recruited by several schools out of high school including Arizona State, Troy, Southern Miss, Valdosta State and Auburn. He said this past year Western Kentucky, Troy, Arizona State and Southern Miss all tried to recruitment him, but he was solid to UK.
One thing is clear, Bailey has worked hard to become a Wildcat. Even though he isn't qualified yet, the future looks bright and fans should be excited to see him in blue.
