One of the best prospects in the Greater Houston area has decided to play his college ball in the Pac 10.
Biren Ealy, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound receiver from Houston’s Cy Falls high school, has pledged to Arizona.
“I wanted to play early,” Ealy said. “I wanted to play as a freshman and I think I can do that at the University of Arizona.”
Ealy selected the Wildcats after visiting Arizona, Colorado and Texas Tech. He was also expected to visit Texas and Texas A&M in January, but says he no longer plans to make those visits.
Ealy liked several other things that the Wildcats showcased on his official visit to Tucson.
“When I went out there, I liked the coaches and the players. And I liked the look of their offense. That was a big deal, too.”
Ealy caught 32 passes for 569 yards and two touchdowns as a senior. He is projected as a full academic qualifier.
