Georgia QB Jacob Eason Announces Transfer

True freshman Jake Fromm stepped in and led Georgia to the No. 1 national ranking, the SEC championship and to the national championship game during a season he was named SEC Freshman of the Year. He was immediately replaced under center by freshman Jake Fromm, who came so close to leading the Bulldogs to their first national title in almost four decades. Reports surfaced earlier in the week that the University of Washington is a likely landing spot for Eason, a Lake Stevens, WA native, but nothing is concrete at this time. His presence certainly wouldn't affect Eason negatively, though, as the latter will be subject to transfer rules that state a player must sit out a full season unless granted a special waiver by the NCAA.

Eason will have to sit out next season, which will be Jake Browning's senior year.

Eason started as a true freshman for Georgia, throwing for 2,430 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2016.

In my opinion, Eason is a better overall player than Browning although both could be solid pros. But UW signed two premier recruits, Jacob Sirmon (6-4, 227, Bothell) and Colson Yankoff (6-4, 204, Hayden, ID.) during national letter day last month. Eason would keep Huskies among the top teams in the country.

Jacob Eason is a Damn Good Dawg.

The Huskies also have two other young quarterbacks, Jake Haener and Daniel Bridge-Gadd, now on the roster, and they have four-star QB Dylan Morris out of Graham-Kapowsin High committed in their 2019 recruiting class. Eason attended nearby Lake Stevens High School. He also completed 55.2 percent of his passes.

He appeared in just three contests this season as the Bulldogs advanced to the College Football Playoff title game Monday night, losing a heartbreaker to the Alabama Crimson Tide, 26-23 in overtime.
