Profle 2003 - Carlton Bailey (DB/WR)
A name that is synonymous with Georgia High School football is "Bailey". Like Sean Bailey of Milton, Carlton Bailey is of no relation to the more famous Baileys that have made a name for themselves at the University of Georgia. This Bailey still does credit to the name in the Peach State though. Bailey is a 2 way standout for Jonesboro High School, but he will likely find his home at corner on the next level.
"I start both ways," said Bailey. "Most schools are recruiting me for defensive back though, specifically corner. I didn't get to many camps this summer. We went to the Georgia Southern team camp this, and I've been working with 2 of my teammates with a strength coach all summer. I've gotten my 40 time down to 4.5. We also have a new DB's coach that I'm real excited to work with. Coach Thomas went to Ole Miss, and he's a great coach. My favorite colleges right now are probably ECU, North Carolina, Duke, Alabama, and Georgia Tech."
Bailey had 6 interceptions for Jonesboro last year, and he could have an even bigger year this year. "He's going to be playing both ways for us," said Head Coach Tommy Webb. "He and Harry Douglass will be a big part of our spread offense and getting the ball downfield."
Bailey doesn't have any formal scholarship offers to this point, but with the kind of year he is capable of having, it won't be long.
