Georgia’s leading rusher from a year ago has decided to transfer and has been granted an unconditional release. But there’s not a whole lot of panic in the Peach State over the departure of Washaun Ealey.
Ealey has been in Mark Richt’s doghouse for some time now. He has been suspended twice — at least — during the past seven months. Chip Towers of The AJC even writes: “Can a team lose its leading rusher and actually become a better team?”
All-everything running back prospect Isaiah Crowell will arrive for the fall. Senior Caleb King is back, too, with Carlton Thomas and Ken “Boo” Malcome behind him. The Dawgs appear to be set with talent and depth, even without Ealey… though no coach likes to lose bodies, ever.
“Washaun and I have had several conversations in recent weeks,” Richt said via press release last evening. “We both have come to the conclusion that a transfer to another institution would be in his best interest.”
Richt recently told a Bulldogs booster club: “The bottom line is we don’t have a tailback right now that deserves to start, in my opinion. We don’t have a guy that has proven he can do all the things that we’re going to ask that guy to do. Washaun is one of them.”
