"I would like to thank the Trojan family for all the support throughout my time here at USC," Bailey posted on his instagram account.

"Without the teammates, coaches, and administration I had here, this opportunity would not be possible. Now I get to go live out my dream!! This is the best day of my life."

Earlier this month, Bailey was named to the All-Pac-12 second team by the league's coaches. In his last game as a Trojan Bailey recorded four tackles as USC defeated Fresno State 45-20 in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl.

The 6'0, 200-pound defender finishes his career at USC with 222 tackles and 11 interceptions. 

NFL scouts are still waiting to hear from other USC draft-eligible players such as: wide receiver Marqise Lee, cornerback Josh Shaw, linebacker Hayes Pullard, center Marcus Martin and defensive end George Uko.
