QB Jacob Eason on coming home to Washington: It ‘wasn’t that hard of a decision’

Jacob Eason is ready to get stated at Washington. Eason, a former 5-star recruit from Lake Stevens, Washington, was Georgia’s starting QB last season. However, after suffering a sprained left knee in the opener, he lost the QB job to true freshman Jake Fromm. Fromm led Georgia to National Championship Game.

Eason was a guest on the Dave Softy Mahler Show on Sportsradio 950 KJR in Seattle and said that he began thinking about transferring from Georgia around week 8-9 of the season, per Rivals’ Lars Hanson.

Eason was ranked as the No. 2 pro-style QB in the 2016 recruiting class and the No. 5 overall player,  per 247 Sports. In his high school career, Eason threw for nearly 10,000 yards and threw over 100 TD passes in 38 games. 

The 6-foot-5 Washington native played in 16 games for Georgia over two seasons, starting 13. He threw for 2,458 yards, 16 TDs and 8 interceptions in those games while completing 55.2 percent of his passes. He will have to sit out the 2018 season and will have two years of eligibility remaining when he returns in 2019.

The Huskies are excited that Eason is in the fold and he is happy to be back in his home state. Huskies quarterback Jake Browning is a senior in 2018, so Eason has a chance to start when he becomes eligible in 2019. For his part, Eason said he is looking forward to Browning’s last season.
