DL/OL
Greenback High School, Greenback, TN
6-6, 255

Virginia Tech went into the state of Tennessee and signed defensive lineman Derrell Bailey, Jr. as a member of the Class of 2020.  Historically the Hokies haven’t hit Tennessee particularly hard, but they saw Bailey as a prospect with a good long-term future who could be developed over time.

Every recruiting site lists Bailey as a defensive end.  He’s 6-6, and he’s listed anywhere from 255-265 on various websites.  That’s great size, but it’s the size of many defensive ends after several years in college.  Bailey has a body that can easily carry 300+ pounds, and he’s already enrolled at Virginia Tech.  He’s not going to stay in the 255 range very long.

I’m sorry to include a picture of Bailey in a UVA uniform during a recruiting visit, but I want to convey to you what I mean when I say that Bailey has a huge frame.
