This is the twelfth and final profile in the Gator Prospectus series covering Florida’s 2013 in-state commits.

Name: Alvin Bailey
Sept. 1
Seffner Armwood
Position: Wide receiver
Height/Weight: 5-foot-11, 175 pounds
Scouting Report: I had the opportunity to watch Bailey at Gridiron Kings over the summer and was really impressed with him at wideout. He caught everything that came his way and had a knack for getting open. He doesn’t pass the look test and has below average size, but he just make plays on the field. Having played multiple positions in high school (primarily quarterback), he isn’t the most polished receiver and has a lot of room for improvement in his route running and techniques. But once the ball gets in his hands, he knows what to do with it and has some great moves. Those qualities are exactly what Florida has been lacking at the receiver position and he should be able to contribute in some capacity next season.
For The Game: Bailey and Class 6A Armwood traveled to Gainesville to face No. 1 ranked GHS in the Region 2 final. Playing at about 70 percent (turf toe) and out of position (quarterback), Bailey and his Hawks were no match for Gainesville’s dominant defense. Bailey threw for 122 yards and a touchdown, but he only completed 10 of 30 pass attempts and the offense was held to just 38 yards rushing. The Hurricanes won 42-10 to advance to the state semifinals this Friday at Navarre.
Quotable: “He’s probably the best football player I’ve ever coached as far as somebody that knows the game, loves to compete and is a difference-maker. There’s nothing that he really can’t do, he’s very versatile. From the mental aspect to the physical, he’s all about football. He’ll do real well at Florida. He can do damage in the slot and he blocks really well on the perimeter. We’re excited to see him head there.” — Armwood coach Sean Callahan.
Notable: Has attended several games this season and will officially visit later this year; Under Armour All-American; competed in The Opening and Gridiron Kings; ranked the No. 7 athlete and No. 71 overall by ESPN, ranked the No. 13 receiver and No. 101 by Rivals.
