Ealey Set for Busy Week

Coatesville, Pa., senior tight end visited Alabama Monday and will see a Big Ten program this weekend.

Many SEC programs know of Amir Ealey from his time in South Carolina. Alabama, on the other hand, found him at Coatesville.

The class of 2015 tight end camped with the Crimson Tide Monday, and believes an offer could be on the way following it.

“It went great,” Ealey said. “The best part was talking to [head] Coach [Nick] Saban about the potential offer and getting out there and putting in work and showing what I can do.

“He was telling me he really liked what he saw today and how I was coming out of my routes.”

Tuscaloosa was the first stop of the week for the three-star, who will visit Penn State Friday for its 7-on passing camp with his Coatesville teammates before camping at University Park Saturday.

Monday was all about the Crimson Tide, though. Ealey said besides Saban, he spoke with Alabama tight ends coach Bobby Williams.

“As far as the chances of pulling an offer, he said they are high,” Ealey said of his chat with Williams. “They said they love the whole camp [performance] and it seemed like every coach knew my name and where I was coming from.

“They showed me a lot and said they like my film.”

Ealey added his first opportunity to chat with Williams showed him just what the Crimson Tide assistant is all about.

“Coach Williams is a great coach to play for,” Ealey said. “He’s real chill and laid back, and he makes sure you do everything right.

“The whole coaching atmosphere, it just seems right. They’re champions, but they’re cool and coaches that have an ability to win. And they care.”

A trip to Ohio State could be added July 25, though the tight end said he had to talk with his father about it first. He also is considering getting back to West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Clemson, and South Carolina before Coatesville kicks off camp in early August.

As for Penn State, he has a simple goal for his two days of working out in front of and with the Lions’ staff.

“I just want to show them that I’m the best tight end in Pennsylvania,” Ealey said.
