Georgia tailback King ineligible for 2011 season
Georgia’s depth chart at tailback has taken another hit as
senior Caleb King is academically ineligible for the 2011
Friday’s announcement from coach Mark Richt opens the way for
incoming freshman Isaiah Crowell to begin his career as the
Washaun Ealey, who led Georgia in rushing last season, left
school in May after two suspensions for disciplinary reasons.
King was suspended for two games last season after failing to
appear in court to deal with a speeding ticket. He missed the
Liberty Bowl because of academic issues.
King rushed for 430 yards with two touchdowns on 80 carries in
2010. Ealey led the team with 811 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns
Richt says King’s ”unfortunate” situation provides
opportunities ”for others to step up.”
