Georgia 5-star QB Jacob Eason reportedly transferring to Washington

Jacob Eason

Jake Fromm does not look to be relinquishing the Georgia starting quarterback job anytime soon which may prompt a decision from backup QB Jacob Eason.

Eason, who started for the Bulldogs last season and was the team's starter in Week 1, suffered a knee injury that knocked him out of the team's season opener against Appalachian State.

This is how the 2015 Gatorade National Player of the Year commented on his future following the Georgia Bulldogs' loss to Alabama in the College Football National Championship Game on Monday night.

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

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

With Fromm holding down the starting gig and incumbent 5-star quarterback Justin Fields who signed with the Bulldogs last month, Eason decided it was time to walk away from the Dawgs. As Georgia made a run to its first College Football Playoff berth, and a thrilling victory over Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl, Eason said he tried to be a team player. He considered the Huskies coming out of high school. Washington's recruiting class of 2018 includes two quarterbacks ranked inside 247 Sports' top 100 prospects: Colson Yankoff, a dual-threat from Idaho, and Jacob Sirmon, a pro-style passer from Washington. In limited time this past season, Eason completed four of seven passes for 28 yards. Fields also just happens to be a quarterback.

But then on the third drive of the season, Eason was pushed out of bounds and twisted his knee. Fromm, who threw for 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions on the season, will enter the 2018 season as Georgia's starter.

Should Eason choose the Huskies, it would give him a year to learn the team's system while providing UW with flexibility.
