Georgia QB Jacob Eason to Transfer to Washington

Eason, the No. 2 quarterback prospect in the class, announced on Friday that he would be leaving Georgia. Eason started Georgia's season-opener against Appalachian State but suffered a sprained knee on the third series of the game. However, there's a chance to start in Washington, unlike in Georgia where Fields will likely take the reigns as soon as Fromm is gone.

Eason looked like a potential 3 years starter at UGA in his first season. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining. Eason has yet to make a transfer destination known at this time.

The 2015 Gatorade national player of the year is a Lake Stevens, Washington native, and the Huskies were one of his finalists before committing to Georgia. Eason told the Seattle Times that he had not yet made a decision, saying "Right now, I'm just spending time with this team. and we'll go from there". "I will miss suiting up in red and black, but Athens will always be a place I can call home", Eason wrote.

In late December, the sophomore quarterback said he tried not to let the coaching staff's decision to go with Fromm impact his outlook. "Ultimately I'll get better in that regard".

Eason won the starting job at Georgia as a true freshman in 2016, throwing for 2,430 yards with 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Despite the unfortunate circumstances, he really bonded with Fromm and worked hard to help him prepare for the games. Jake Fromm played extremely efficiently and eventually led the team to a national championship.

The Huskies are set at quarterback in 2018 when Jake Browning returns for his senior season.

Washington quarterback Jake Browning is coming off another stellar season, but didn't play well enough in 2017 to cement himself as an early round NFL Draft pick.
