Jacob Eason leaving UGA; thanks school for 'incredible two years'

Jacob Eason leaving UGA; thanks school for 'incredible two years'

"Thank you UGA for an incredible two years", Eason wrote on Twitter.

Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Jacob Eason (10) attempts a pass during the second half against the Vanderbilt Commodores at Vanderbilt Stadium. He didn't specified where he will transfer.

Quarterback Jacob Eason is expected to transfer from Georgia to Washington, via Adam Jude of the Seattle Times.

The 6-foot-5 sophomore, would have to sit out the 2018 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

On the other side, Washington's starting quarterback is Jake Browning, who would be a senior next year.

Eason, from Lake Stevens, Wash., played behind freshman Jake Fromm this season after suffering a knee injury in Georgia's season opener against Appalachian State.

It opened the door for true freshman Jake Fromm, who led the Bulldogs to a 31-10 win.

Eason finished the 2017 season as a backup after starting 12 of 13 games as a true freshman the year before. However, there's a chance to start in Washington, unlike in Georgia where Fields will likely take the reigns as soon as Fromm is gone.

"You still prepare like it's the same as a year ago like you're the man", Eason said.

Jacob Eason is a Damn Good Dawg. That was confirmed Friday by someone close to Eason.

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. "I'm excited for him every game, and every opportunity he gets, I'm going to give him a high-five on the sideline because he's done a great job". 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. "I think what they did was right - I mean, look where we are now".
