JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Alabama Head Football Coach Nick Saban spent Thursday afternoon in Jackson, Mississippi recruiting.
He was on Jackson Prep’s campus to visit with 5-star recruit Jerrion Ealy who is a dual athlete. Ealy shines in both football and baseball, so Saban met Ealy at baseball practice.
Saban was greeted by Prep’s head football coach, Ricky Black. Saban chatted with Ealy by the batting cages for a while, then headed inside to talk with Ealy’s mother and Coach Black.
Clemson’s co-offensive coordinator and running backs coach was also on campus to visit with Ealy and watch him practice.
Ealy recently de-committed from Ole Miss and has been entertaining other offers. He’s also projected to go in the first round of the MLB Draft.
National Signing day comes first for Ealy next month, then he will wait until June for the MLB Draft.
