Ealy is ready to go!

Five star running backs at Ole Miss were once as common as unicorns, but no more thanks to one Jerrion Ealy.

Ealy stepping on the field in a red and blue uniform is one of the more exciting stories to follow when Ole Miss takes on Memphis this Saturday (11am ABC), and throughout the season because running backs of his caliber can be difference makers. The MVP from the Under Armour All-America Game could ignite the Rebels in a way we haven’t seen before.

That’s certainly my hope.

Ealy told reporters on Tuesday that he is ready to go, and it sounds like the true freshman will be part of the game plan in Week 1.

“They look to give me the ball in space. That’s all I know,” Ealy smiled.

“Sometimes they ask me to get in the slot a little bit, running back, return kicks, return punts. other than that, that’s about it.”

That sounds like just about everything. I can’t wait to watch this guy play!
