Four-star forward Brendan Bailey down to five schools


Brendan Bailey, a four-star small forward, has cut his list of schools to five, telling Josh Gershon of on Friday night that he is down to Gonzaga, Marquette, Michigan, San Diego State and Utah.

The 6-foot-7 American Fork High (Utah) product committed to Arizona State on Dec. 1. But after Herb Sendek was fired, he reopened his recruitment.

Bailey told Gershon that he has already taken official visits to Marquette and San Diego State while also using a third to take a trip to UConn. That leaves Bailey with two remaining official visits. He told Scout he’ll likely be on the Gonzaga campus the first or second week of October.

Bailey is rated as the No. 61 overall player in the senior class by Rivals. He is expected to take a two-year Mormon mission before he enrolls in college, which means he won’t start his collegiate career until 2018.

He averaged 14.1 points and 7.5 rebounds per game with Dream Vision in the adidas Gauntlet Series.
