Harrison Bailey is apparently not your typical eighth grader. Most eighth graders are having a hard enough time getting their homework done and dealing with puberty. Harrison, however, is just slaying it on the football field so much that this week he received a scholarship offer from University of Miami head coach Mark Richt.
Hell, bro already had a highlight reel when he was just 11 and in sixth grade…
And another one when he was just 10…
Richt, who previously coached at Georgia before taking over at Miami, became well aware of Bailey while coaching there as Bailey will be attending Hillgrove High School in Powder Springs, Georgia next season.
“He said we usually don’t offer young bucks like you but you’re talented and we think you can handle it,” Bailey told Youth1 about the offer from Miami. “We don’t think you’ll get a big head and we want to offer you a scholarship.”
At 6’3 and 175 pounds with plenty of time to grow, Bailey already boasts a very impressive highlight reel from his most recent season. As to whether or not he actually ends up playing for Miami in four years remains to be seen, but wherever he ends up some lucky college coach is going to be very happy come the 2020 football season.
