Mission Accomplished for Bailey

Zack Bailey took a two-day visit to Clemson earlier this week for one major reason.

The four-star guard from Summerville High School wanted to get another view of Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell.

"I went up there, really, just to see how coach Caldwell coaches," Bailey told CUTigers. "I hadn't ever seen him in practice. I've seen him in games. I'd seen him and talked, but I never really got the opportunity to see how he is at practice, but I went up there and had a blast, did the workouts and they were fun. I saw how he coached."

Bailey added, "I enjoyed it a lot. We went there Monday morning. We stayed for two sessions Monday morning, stayed the night and did the session Tuesday morning. It was good. I enjoyed it a lot."

For most of Bailey's stay, he was accompanied by Clemson offensive tackle commitment Jake Fruhmorgen. Mitch Hyatt and Noah Green also spent some time at his side.

The trio spent some time recruiting him, but didn't put up a full-court press.

"We were just hanging out. Yeah, they're all committed, but they know the process," Bailey said. "They all said they wanted me to go to Clemson, but at the end, they know the process, just going through it."

There are a few more visits on the docket for later this summer.

"I'll probably take a Georgia visit, go to Georgia for a little bit, [and] go to North Carolina for a little bit," Bailey said. "I'll probably end up taking [a visit] Saturday -- I'll probably end up going to Columbia. I'm going up there today. My grandfather is receiving an award, so we'll go up there. I might stop in and say what's up to everybody, but other than that, I'm just hanging out."

His timeline for a decision remains unchanged from his previous interview with CUTigers.

"Decision-wise, probably before the season starts, probably, but I'm not going to say there's all truth to that, because if I'm not 100 percent and I don't know if that's where I want to go, I'll make sure that I wait a little longer until I'm ready and it's the right decision for me," Bailey said. "I don't want to have any second guesses. I don't want to feel like I made the wrong choice or anything like that."

The same can be said when it comes to naming a leader or offering a list of favorites.

"I'm kind of just neutral." Bailey said.
