Charlotte Christian sophomore basketball star has 31 college offers

Charlotte Christian sophomore Gigi Bailey, a 6-foot-4 center, has 31 college offers, her mother, Kim Bailey, said.

Bailey, who turned 16 in November, is a National Honor Society student.  She has a 4.64 GPA. She and her family moved from New York when Gigi was 6. She started at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in second grade and was moved up to third grade during the school year, Kim Bailey said, because teachers said they couldn't challenge her anymore.

When Gigi transferred to Charlotte Christian two years ago, she would've naturally been a ninth grader. She had finished Mint Hill Middle School. Kim Bailey said the family chose to reclass Gigi as an eighth grader to help her socially.

"We just felt she needed to be back in her normal grade," Kim Bailey said. "She needed that extra year."

Bailey was all-Charlotte Observer in Mecklenburg County as a freshman.
