Report: Jacob Eason expected to transfer to Washington

January 9, 2018 GMT

According to a report from the Seattle Times, Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason is expected to transfer to Washington now that Georgia’s 2017 season has concluded.

Eason, who started 12 games for the Bulldogs in 2016 and entered the 2017 season as the starter, is a former five-star recruit from the town of Lake Stevens, Washington.

Base on NCAA rules, Eason would have to sit out one year at Washington, giving him two years of college eligibility left in the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

After an injury in the first game of the 2017 season sidelined Eason, freshman Jake Fromm relieved the sophomore and never relinquished the starting role. Eason threw for 2,430 yards 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

In 2017, Eason accumulated 28 passing yards in a limited backup role.
