Ole Miss commit Jerrion Ealy put on a show in the Under Armour All-America Game last night, and earned MVP honors.
The game brings the top high school talent from across the country together, and the Jackson Prep running back stood out above the rest, taking 14 carries for 119 yards and 2 TDs. With his performance, Ealy broke the UA All-America Game record for rushing yards, and it was his 38-yard TD in the 3rd quarter that truly showcased his speed and agility.

The question now becomes whether or not Ealy will suit up for Ole Miss or decide to pursue a career in baseball. He’s projected as a first-round pick in the upcoming MLB draft in June, but according to 247 Sports, he stated that he’ll wait until then to make that decision.
“When June rolls around, I will make that decision, but for right now, I plan to go play college football and baseball,” he said.
Ealy, a 5’9 190-pound 4-star recruit, is the #4 RB in the 2019 recruting cycle and the #2 player in the state of Mississippi.
The Jackson native recently took a visit to Mississippi State and has visits lined up at both Ole Miss and Clemson ahead of National Signing Day in February.
