Flowood, MS — The Ole Miss Rebels are less than a month out from signing day, and they are now short another piece of their class as two-sport All-American and Jackson Prep senior Jerrion Ealy announced Tuesday morning via his Twitter account (@ealy_1k) that he would be decommitting from the school.

Speaking to The Sentry, the star running back said, “I just need to make sure I find my right fit.”

Ealy initially committed to Ole Miss as a junior in December of 2017, and was arguably the leader of their prospective class until Tuesday morning. Due to his status as a highly sought after Major League Baseball prospect, he will also have to decide if he will pursue that option, although that decision will not have to be made until mid-summer. Ealy is regarded by many draft analysts to be a top-tier first round baseball draft pick coming out of high school. 

Ealy could still sign with the Rebels on signing day, but for now he will finish his official visits and decide which school is best for him. This weekend, he plans to take an official visit to see the 2019 national champion Clemson Tigers. This will be coming less than two weeks after he set the Under Armour All-American game rushing record with 119 yards and two touchdowns, which earned him team Flash’s MVP title.

Right now, it seems as if Ole Miss is still in the conversation, along with Mississippi State and Clemson. The Jackson Prep community, along with the entire nation, will have to wait until February 6th to find out Ealy’s decision when he signs with a college here on the Jackson Prep campus.
