Sophomore receiver Christian Bailey will look to increase his role for the Huskers in 2015. The 5-11, 205-pound Bailey provided depth for the Huskers last season and saw limited action. Bailey made the most of his only catch, grabbing a touchdown in his home state against Fresno State. He also contributed on Nebraska’s special teams. Bailey came to Nebraska from San Clemente High School in California.
2014 (Redshirt Freshman)
Bailey played in four games as a reserve receiver and on special teams. He caught a 10-yard touchdown pass at Fresno State for his only reception of the season.
A walk-on, Bailey redshirted in his first season in the program.
Before Nebraska (San Clemente HS)
Bailey was a versatile player for San Clemente (Calif.) High School. He lined up at both receiver and running back for the Tritons. A two-time all-league performer, Bailey hauled in 44 balls for 495 yards and four touchdowns as a senior, while also rushing for 274 yards and six touchdowns on 46 carries. Bailey drew interest from Oregon and Oregon State.
The son of Jeff and Rebecca Bailey, Christian was born on Dec. 17, 1994. He is majoring in finance and has been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll twice. Bailey has been active in the community, volunteering with Uplifting Athletes, Husker Heroes, Husker Hotline and at local hospital and rec center visits.
