Of course you remember way back in 2014 when we first told you about Georgia Ellenwood, a Wisconsin heptathlete, who was dating Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah. It was big news then and could be even bigger news tonight if somehow Ameer is able to sneak into the 1st round of the NFL Draft. OK, so it’s not happening. It’s highly likely Ellenwood and Abdullah will be drafted Friday night during Round 2 and 3 coverage on ESPN.
You guys are always looking for some sort of athletic power couple this time of year, well here they are. Ellenwood recently finished 8th in the pentathlon at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Then Abdullah ran a 4.55 40 at his workout day. One is about to get paid a decent amount of money to start his short NFL career while the other has two years left at Wisconsin.
The good news for ESPN is that Ellenwood doesn’t have a meet this weekend. Maybe she’ll be on a couch with Abdullah’s crew.
