Washaun Ealey Transferring To Jacksonville State Football, To Houston Nutt's Dismay

Former Georgia Bulldogs RB Washaun Ealey has found a new college football home: the Jacksonville St. Gamecocksaccording to a report by the Athens Banner-Herald's Marc Weiszer. As that's a FCS program, he'll be able to play in the 2011 season.

Had he transferred a year prior, he would've been able to contribute to JSU's last-second beating of the Mississippi Rebels and perhaps helped the Cocks avoid a near-catastrophe against the newborn Georgia St. Panthers.

Weiszer cites Ealey's high school coach as saying the school will be a good fit.

Ealey left UGA as the program's two-time defending rushing champ, having faced mounting problems on and off the field, though none were really all that cataclysmic. If Mark Richt had simply had enough of Ealey's constant adventures, nobody really blamed him. The talented back leaves behind very high unfulfilled expectations, hopefully heading to a better opportunity.
