Emmanuel County Institute made quick work of many of its opponents last year en route to the GA Single A State Championship. There were many stars who contributed to the run and Scout was able to catch up with one of the brightest. RB Washaun Ealey enjoyed unmitigated success and was rewarded by many scholarship offers, one of which he had coveted for quite some time. Ealey has been a solid commit to Georgia and it appears that the Bulldogs have won the services of a fine student-athlete. However, when Scout was able to touch base with Ealey, there was some rather interesting news.
"I am committed to Georgia but I will probably take my official visits."
An invitation to the Scout.Com Southeastern Elite 150 Camp was extended to Ealey, as well as teammate and fellow Georgia commit Dexter Moody, but the two will not be in attendance.
"We are going on a trip together so we can't make it."
What was more startling, however, was that even if Ealey could attend, he would not be able to compete after all.
"I actually just got a cast off and just got off crutches."
It turns out that Ealey injured his ankle earlier in the spring while playing baseball and this, along with other factors, will probably keep him from camping at all this summer. He will more than likely heed the advice of his high school head coach and his future position coach.
"My (high school) coach told me that I am already committed and I don't have anything to gain and Coach Ball (RBs—Georgia) just wants me to work out.
Ealey reiterated the fact that he is solid to Georgia but stay tuned to see how things play out.
