    This past weekend proved to be a great one for Tennessee’s 2020 quarterback commit.

    Four-star, pro-style quarterback and Vol commit Harrison Bailey participated at Nike’s Elite 11 Regional Camp this weekend in Charlotte, NC and did not disappoint. The four-star QB has been showcasing his talents as a peer recruiter for Tennessee’s 2020 class, but when it came time to get out on the field, Bailey showed why he’s considered one of the top signal callers in the 2020 cycle.

    The 6-foot-4, 220-pound quarterback out of Marietta High School in Georgia took home the MVP trophy from the Charlotte regional when it was all said and done.

    Bailey won the MVP award for the quarterback position at the camp over competitors like four-star LSU commit Max Johnson, four-star South Carolina commit Luke Doty, and high-profile 2021 quarterbacks like Brock Vandergriff and Drake Maye.

    The Elite 11 Regional Camps provide the top quarterbacks in high school a chance to showcase their talents in a competitive and professional environment. Some of the top quarterback instructors in the country help run specific drills and situations for the top QB prospects to see how they stack up against each other.

    At the conclusion of the day, one quarterback who stood out above all others is chosen as the MVP of the group at each regional camp. Bailey received the award this year after putting on a clinic at the Charlotte regional.

    After that performance, Bailey got an invite to an even more exclusive camp later this summer.

    Tennessee’s quarterback commit received an invitation to the Elite 11 Finals in June after his great performance on Sunday. The Vols have had a couple other quarterbacks be invited to the Elite 11 Finals over the past few years, and Bailey has now added his name to that list.

    Current starting quarterback Jarrett Guarantano was invited to the Elite 11 Finals in 2015, and Vol 2018 quarterback signee and early enrollee Brian Maurer also participated in last year’s Elite 11 Finals. At last year’s event, Maurer proved to be one of the most improved QBs at the camp and finished fifth among the 12 quarterbacks in attendance.

    The Elite 11 Finals will be held in conjunction with Nike’s The Opening Finals in Frisco, Texas at the Dallas Cowboys’ training facilities.

    Not only will Bailey be in Texas for the Elite 11 Finals, but he’s also set to participate in the 2020 All-American Bowl in San Antonio.

    Bailey has been committed to the Vols since November 29th of 2018 and has been a strong peer recruiter for Tennessee in their 2020 class. He’s currently ranked as the No. 79 overall prospect and No. 5 pro-style quarterback in the 2020 class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
