High school record-setting running back Washaun Ealey of Emanuel County Institute isn’t on campus at the University of Georgia — not yet, anyway — but Bulldogs coach Mark Richt isn’t worried.
“Washaun, I think it’s just a matter of time,” Richt told the Athens Banner-Herald.
Sixteen of the 20 in Georgia’s Class of 2009 recruiting haul are already on campus. Ealey, defensive tackle Kwame Geathers, kicker Brandon Bogotay and linebacker Nick Williams still haven’t reported. Only as far as Geathers’ qualifying academically, Richt said, “There’s still some information coming in that will give us a better picture.” The rest are expected as well.
Ealey set a state record for touchdowns scored with 133 during his ECI career, including a single-season record 58 in 2007.
