The road show is about to begin for 2017 Rivals250 offensive tackle Adrian Ealy. He is in high demand, and he has a few plans.

Schools from near and far have expressed an interest and many have offered the Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab standout, but his journey will begin in his backyard.

“I’m definitely headed to LSU. I’m going to try to make one of Mississippi State’s. I wasn’t able to make it to the one this week. I’m going to try and hit up Florida and Alabama.”

As the attention grows and the recruiting process progresses, Ealy is soaking in the experience. However, he enjoys one part of the process more than the others right now.

“I’m going to say coaches being able to call so being about to talk to the coaches and getting to know them and build relationships with them so it’s starting to get fun.”

LSU, Mississippi State, and Ole Miss have been hot on his trail. North Carolina was his most recent offer, and Alabama has made sure he knows where he stands. Oklahoma State and Arizona State have also stepped up their interest.

He is taking in all the attention, but he admits one school has jumped to the front early in the process.

“You know my leaders right now, LSU, they’re at the top right now since I’m talking to them every day,” Ealy said. “Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Alabama, Texas, Florida State, Florida are all starting to come up because they’re all texting and calling me. Tennessee is a big school I’m thinking about too.”

Ealy also plans to attend the Rivals Camp Series and the Opening Regionals.

He is currently ranked No. 154 in the 2017 Rivals250, No. 18 among the nation’s 2017 offensive tackles, and No. 6 in the 2017 Louisiana Postseason Top 25.
