Georgia QB Eason headed to Huskies

Georgia QB Eason headed to Huskies

True freshman Jake Fromm took over for Eason and never relinquished the job, leading the Bulldogs to an SEC championship and a spot in Monday's national championship game in Atlanta.

Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason is set to transfer to Washington barring a "last-minute change of heart", according to a report from Adam Jude of The Seattle Times. This season, he started game one against Appalachian State before leaving the game with a knee injury.

Following Jake Fromm's emergence and the signing of 2018 five-star prospect Justin Fields, this move seemed inevitable if Eason had any hopes of starting in the near future.

Eason is from the state of Washington and played his high school football at Lake Stevens, which is about a 40-mile drive to Seattle. Eason (6-5, 236) has the ideal frame for a quarterback with an arm to match, and a fresh start at a new school will breathe life into his promising collegiate career. 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. Fields also just happens to be a quarterback.

The maturation of players like Jake Fromm and Riley Ridley and a No. 1 recruiting class point to good times ahead for Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs. Georgia's third quarterback, at least for now, will be walk-on Stetson Bennett, who redshirted this past season while working with the scout team. Eason would keep Huskies among the top teams in the country. Jake Browning, unless he surprisingly declares for the National Football League draft in the next several days, will finish his career as a senior next season.

Eason played in six games this season, going 4-of-7 for 28 yards.

A year later, he threw for 2,829 yards and 32 touchdowns while completing 68.6 percent of his passes.
