Washaun Ealey's Transfer Enlists Bryan McClendon's Assistance, Disappoints High School Coach

Washaun Ealey will soon transfer from Georgia Bulldogs football to another school. UGA running backs coach Bryan McClendon has been trying to help Ealey settle on a new destination, as told to the Athens Banner-Herald's Marc Weiszer:

He's got some things to look at and we're trying to make sure that we make the right choice for him ... There's still plenty of options out there for him, so we're trying to do what we can to put him in a good position still ... That's my main focus for him right now: that he sets himself up to do well in life outside of football.

That potential Georgia Southern Eagles transfer also gets a mention in the story. Weiszer also talked to Ealey's high school coach, Emanuel County's Milan Turner:

I hate to see him go. I was really hoping it would work out for Washaun and for the University of Georgia. It's a privilege to play there. We've known Washaun's had some incidents here and there that have kind of gotten him in trouble ... Hopefully they'll part ways on good terms.
