Even Without Jake Browning, Washington's 2019 Quarterback Room Will Be Loaded

Adjust Comment Print

Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason, who started every game for the Bulldogs in 2016, now intends to transfer to Washington, Adam Jude of the Seattle Times reports.

Eason was Georgia's starter to begin the 2017 season, but suffered a knee injury in the opener.

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.

Assuming Eason transfers to another FBS program, he will be forced to sit out next season before having two years of eligibility left. Eason is originally from Lake Stevens, Washington so it only makes sense that he would return to his home state and play football.

Eason did not address where he would play next in the tweet he sent out Friday afternoon.

Ten states, including ME and New Hampshire, had sent proposals to the federal government seeking the controversial change. The agency is expected to start approving state waivers promoting "community engagement activities" in coming weeks.

The two coaches who recruited Eason - Mike Bobo and Mark Richt - are no longer at Georgia. Last month, the Huskies signed two quarterback recruits, Jacob Sirmon and Colson Yankoff, ranked among the top-100 players in the nation.

Should Eason choose the Huskies, it would give him a year to learn the team's system while providing UW with flexibility. He considered the Huskies coming out of high school. Eason told the Seattle Times that he had not yet made a decision, saying "Right now, I'm just spending time with this team. and we'll go from there". Fields, the No. 2 prospect in America, is also from The Peach State.

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

Eason was 4 of 7 for 28 yards this past season.

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.
