2022 guard Amari Bailey verbally commits to UCLA after dominant freshman year

Amari Bailey just turned 15 this February, in his freshman year of High School Bailey won a California State Championship with Sierra Canyon and verbally committed to UCLA.

The 6’4, 170 pound shooting guard is one of the most athletic prospects in the 2022 class with an unstoppable motor. Bailey loves to compete and is always working on both offense and defense. While his athleticism stands out Bailey has an impressive overall game, he can facilitate just as well as he can score, he gets to the rim with ease and has shown the ability to knock down outside jump shots when opponents give him space.

Bailey has been a viral phenom for a while now, his internet stardom began at the MSHTV Showcase when he started throwing down dunks at the age of 13. People who really watched him play knew the hype was justified and it was just a matter of time before he committed to a D-I school.  

Bailey is currently back in Chicago playing AAU ball with Mac Irvin Fire on the Nike Circuit.
