As a freshman, Ealey caught two passes for 25 yards and a touchdown at Irmo High School. Injuries along the offensive line moved him to offensive tackle last season.

Now a rising junior, Ealey will play tight end this fall. Last Thursday, he worked at tight end during the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

"It was real good. I really like the campus there," Ealey told CUTigers over the weekend.

For the second summer in a row, Ealey worked with tight ends coach Danny Pearman.

"He's a nice coach. I had fun working with him [Thursday]. He pushed me really strongly," Ealey said.

This summer, he also plans to camp at Georgia, Florida, LSU and South Carolina.

Those schools, plus N.C. State, Nebraska, Michigan, Kentucky, Maryland and Appalachian State have also expressed interest.

Although he hasn't picked up an offer, Ealey knows what he'll be looking for in a school.

"First is always academics. I've got to see what the school is like on the academic side," he said. "Second is how I'm going to fit into a team's program. I don't mind being a second or third person on the roster.

"I like to work for my things. I like to earn them. I don't like to have things given to me, unless I work for it in the first place."

Ealey is listed at 6-foot-4, 230 pounds.
