Hamilton on Ealey

Georgia safety Jakar Hamilton says he didn’t know his roommate, Washaun Ealey, had a suspended license when he let him use his car early last Friday morning.

But Hamilton also holds no grudge against Ealey, the Georgia tailback who not only dinged the car, but ended up in jail.

Ealey, a sophomore, spent six hours in jail after being arrested for leaving the scene after hitting a parked car with Hamilton’s 2011 Chevrolet Impala. Ealey was also charged with driving under a suspended license.

“Stuff happens,” Hamilton said. “If it was me or anyone else, my friends would’ve let me use their car. It’s just a brotherly type hood that we have. And I treat Washaun like he’s my own brother. I look out for him just like he looks out for me. Unfortunately that happened. It’s just a minor setback thing. It’s nothing really major. Anything could’ve happened. It could’ve beeen worse.

“But thankfully he’s back with us now, he’s still playing football, so that’s just water under the bridge."

Ealey has been suspended a minimum of one game by the Bulldogs. And his arrest was big news.

"People blew it up, of course that’s what’s gonna happen because you’re a superstar," Hamilton said. "But, I don’t hold no grudge against Washaun. He’s my brother, regardless of what happened to my car. That’s just a material thing.”

As for the car, Hamilton said “it can be fixed.”

Meantime, there’s an interesting bit of confusion regarding Hamilton at the safety position. The official depth chart released by Georgia says Nick Williams is starting at strong safety, and Bacarri Rambo at free safety. But Hamilton said he’s been told by defensive coordinator Todd Grantham that he’s starting at free safety, with Rambo at strong.

Either way, expect a lot of rotating.

“Everybody’s pretty much gonna get the same rotation,” Hamilton said. “The rotation is pretty good, it’s working pretty well right now. Bacarri can play both ways, Nick can come in on both downs, or me and Nick can play at the same time.”

Nice attitude. No wonder we're leading the 'Fulmer Cup'.
