Jacob Eason plans to leave Georgia, transfer to Washington

"Barring a last-minute change of heart, former Lake Stevens High star quarterback Jacob Eason is expected to transfer from Georgia to Washington for the next step in his college football career, multiple sources told The Seattle Times", Adam Jude of the Seattle Times reported Tuesday. He was replaced by freshman Jake Fromm, who went on to lead the Bulldogs' offense to a national title game appearance against Alabama.

Eason was once a five-star recruit and arguably the top quarterback prospect in the nation, but Kirby Smart chose to stick with freshman Jake Fromm as the starter this season after his star sophomore went down with a knee injury in the opener but was cleared to return halfway through the year. Browning would hold on to his job, obviously, in 2018 and then give way to Eason the next season and he would then have two years of eligibility. The Huskies brought in not one but two four-star quarterbacks in their 2018 recruiting class in Jacob Sirmon and Colson Yankoff. That he'd transfer from Georgia makes sense, too.

Eason, a sophomore, entered the season as UGA's starting quarterback, but was injured in the opener against Appalachian State. According to Jude, multiple sources have indicated Eason plans to leave Georgia with the likely destination of Washington. True freshman Jake Fromm took over under center, and did not relinquish the position even after Eason was healthy enough to return. Asked if he has talked with UW coaches about a possible transfer, he said: "I have not". As a freshman in 2016, Eason passed for 2,430 yards, 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Eason finished the year completing 4 of 7 passes for 28 yards, but appeared in six games and is not eligible for a medical redshirt season.
