Personal Life

Airious “Ace” Bailey is originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee, but he moved to McEachern High School in Power Springs, Georgia, ahead of his sophomore season. During his junior season, Bailey did not play in some high-level events, such as USA Basketball, Pangos All-American Camp or the NBAPA Top 100 camp, but those that follow him believe he has great length and “breath-taking athleticism.” Bailey has heard the critics, but he believes in himself. “I can dribble, shoot the ball, my IQ is high, I’m able to make plays off the dribble, catch and shoot,” Bailey told On3’s Jamie Shaw. “I do it all. I like to watch Kevin Durant, Paul George and Jayson Tatum. I’ve modeled my game after guys like them. I know I can have an impact on the game as they have.” Bailey also prides himself on being a leader for his teammates. “I’m always working on building on my leadership ability,” Bailey told GPB Sports. “When I leave McEachern, I want the same foundation that was laid for me for the next players here. It’s all about working on being a leader on and off the court, showing the younger guys how to do things right. Leading by example is what I pride myself on.”
