Youyoute changing gears
080513 GSU IZZY 01
Ezayi Youyoute looks for someone to block from the slotback position during practice on Monday. Youyoute is adjusting nicely to his new role after spending the last three seasons with the Eagles as a quarterback.
When the 2012 season began, Ezayi Youyoute was the starting quarterback for the Georgia Southern Eagles. On a rainy Saturday last September, Jerick McKinnon emerged as the team’s quarterback, as he entered the game in the second quarter against Samford and led GSU to a 35-16 win. Youyoute, who played in 10 games in 2012 and put up good rushing numbers — 74 carries for 454 yards (6.1 average per carry) and five touchdowns — moved to slotback before fall camp started last week.
