Georgia QB Jacob Eason expected to transfer to Washington, report says

Eason's development into a premier quarterback was stalled this season, though, when he was beaten out for the Bulldogs' starting spot under center after an injury by freshman Jake Fromm, another highly touted recruit.

Eason sprained his knee in the season opener and lost his starting job to Jake Fromm, who led UGA to the College Football Playoff National Championship Game and the SEC championship.

Eason finished the 2017 season as a backup after starting 12 of 13 games as a true freshman the year before. This news confirms weeks of speculation regarding the playing future of Eason, who hails from Lake Stevens, Washington, within an hour's drive of the university's campus in Seattle. He'd possess two years of eligibility after sitting out the 2018 college football season based on NCAA transfer rules.

The former Gatorade national player of the year had considered the Huskies during his initial recruitment out of Lake Stevens more than two years ago.

Eason was recruited heavily by UW but had made an oral commitment to Georgia well before signing day.

The Huskies also have two other young quarterbacks, Jake Haener and Daniel Bridge-Gadd, now on the roster, and they have four-star QB Dylan Morris out of Graham-Kapowsin High committed in their 2019 recruiting class.

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.

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 would keep Huskies among the top teams in the country.

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