Washaun Ealey To Georgia Southern Football Transfer Not Happening

Despite months of speculation, newly released Georgia Bulldogs RB Washaun Ealey will not be joining the Georgia Southern Eaglesreports the Athens Banner-Herald's Marc Weiszer. In an email, GSU assistant athletic director Rose Carter said, "Georgia Southern has not been and will not be in conversation with Washaun Ealey."

If Ealey wants to remain in-state and avoid missing the 2011 season, that would leave only the Georgia St. Panthers, though Bill Curry's also recently kicked a miscreant or two off his own team. Some have noted the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets always like to keep a pile of running backs handy, but I can't decide whether Paul Johnson would rather bring on Ealey to spite Georgia or not bring him on to spite Georgia.

It's a big sea out there otherwise, as his unconditional release frees him to play for any school that will have him. The Kentucky Wildcats would likely be pleased to bring on the guy who pummeled them for five touchdowns, while Ealey's always been good to the Colorado Buffaloes.
