ESPN 300 running back Jerrion Ealy committed to Ole Miss on Wednesday. The No. 19-ranked prospect is rejoining the Ole Miss Rebels’ class after decommitting in December.
Ealy, however, is projected as a potential first-round selection in the upcoming MLB draft in June. Ole Miss coaches will have to wait to see if they’ll be adding the star back to their roster, as Ealy won’t make a decision between professional baseball or the college route until he is drafted and is offered a contract and signing bonus.
The 5-foot-9, 192-pounder from Jackson, Mississippi, chose Ole Miss over Alabama, Clemson and Mississippi State and is the highest-ranked commit in the class for the Rebels.
