  • BREAKING: Georgia QB Jacob Eason Is Expected To Transfer To Washington

Eason started the season as Georgia's starting quarterback but sustained a sprained left knee ligament forced him out of the season opener.

True freshman Jake Fromm entered and didn't surrender the starting position the remainder of the season.

Eason was a five-star prospect, the top-ranked quarterback in the 2016 class and Gatorade National Player of the Year when he picked Georgia over Washington, the school just 30 miles southeast of his Lake Stevens, Wash., home. 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. He would then have two seasons of eligibility remaining after that.

"Going to sit down with my family and figure that out", Eason told The Seattle Times' Stefanie Loh in Atlanta.

Eason was recruited heavily by UW but had made an oral commitment to Georgia well before signing day. He completed 55.1 percent of his passes with 16 touchdown passes and eight interceptions in 2016, when the Bulldogs finished 8-5.


Eason's recruiting profile started rising during his sophomore year at Lake Stevens. "I learned from it and I think ultimately it was a good year to have under my belt, something that will help me out in the future".

He added: "You could be mad about it, you could sulk about it all season, but I took what happened and did what I could with it". Eason was also notably supportive of Fromm following the loss in the National Championship Game.

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

Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason announced the expected on Friday: He's leaving the Bulldogs. So Eason should have an opportunity to compete for the Huskies' starting job when first eligible.
