BREAKING: Georgia QB Jacob Eason Is Expected To Transfer To Washington

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

Georgia lost Monday's National Championship Game and the Bulldogs are about to lose one of their quarterbacks. This season, he started game one against Appalachian State before leaving the game with a knee injury. He was immediately replaced under center by freshman Jake Fromm, who came so close to leading the Bulldogs to their first national title in almost four decades. He'd rather go somewhere else where he can play, and heading home to Washington makes sense.

Three weeks after the Huskies signed two four-star quarterbacks in the 2018 recruiting class, Colson Yankoff and Jacob Sirmon, The Seattle Times reported that Washington native Jacob Eason is expected to transfer from Georgia.

"Thank you UGA for an incredible two years", Eason said in his Tweet.

"Going to sit down with my family and figure that out", he told the Seattle Times' Stefanie Loh in Atlanta.

Jacob Eason's time at Georgia is over. "I think what they did was right - I mean, look where we are now".

Speculation on Oprah presidential bid boosts Weight Watchers shares
It often takes an Oprah Winfrey, someone undisputedly at the top of the game, to drop the anvil . Just days into 2018, the race for the USA presidency in 2020 is already making headlines.

The former five-star prospect that was seen as Georgia's savior soon after his arrival is now gone after only two seasons on campus. 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.

As a true freshman starter in 2016, he threw for 2,430 yards and 16 touchdowns with eight interceptions.

After his team's recent loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide, Eason refused to offer much clarity regarding the rumors that he had already made up his mind to transfer away from Georgia.

The Huskies are set at quarterback in 2018 when Jake Browning returns for his senior season.

Eason was a top recruit in the 2016 class, regarded as the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the country by 247Sports. So Eason should have an opportunity to compete for the Huskies' starting job when first eligible.
