Georgia QB Jacob Eason to Transfer to Washington

What was long expected is now official: Jacob Eason, the starting quarterback when the 2017 Georgia football season began, is leaving the program.

Eason is from Lake Stevens, Wash. and opened up the season as Georgia's starting quarterback before injuring his knee. His presence certainly wouldn't affect Eason negatively, though, as the latter will be subject to transfer rules that state a player must sit out a full season unless granted a special waiver by the NCAA. While at Georgia, Eason completed 55.1% of his throws for 2,430 yards and 16 touchdowns, with eight interceptions.

No disrespect to Jake Browning, who just happens to be one of the best quarterbacks in the Pac-12, but if Jacob Eason transfers back home to play for Chris Peterson and Washington, the Huskies would be considered favorites to win the conference title.

True freshman Jake Fromm entered and didn't surrender the starting position the remainder of the season.

Ankara has also summoned ambassadors of Russian Federation and Iran for expressing displeasure on Damascus attacks in Idlib. Ambassadors of the two countries were called in to express Ankara's displeasure over the continuing attacks in Idlib.

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

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.

While nothing has been confirmed, there are reports that Eason could be set for a move home. Incoming five-star recruit Justin Fields will add more competition to Georgia's quarterback situation. Fields, the No. 2 prospect in America, is also from The Peach State. Fromm took over and led the Bulldogs to the SEC championship and a berth in the College Football Playoff semifinals, where they beat Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl to advance to the finals. Eason would keep Huskies among the top teams in the country. He completed 69.5 percent of his passes and averaged almost 276 yards per game.
