SEATTLE (AP) — Jacob Eason is ready to become arguably the most highly touted scout team quarterback in the country.
The former Georgia starter is nearing the end of his first spring with Washington and preparing for a season spent as a spectator. But waiting at the end of that long year of watching is the expectation that when 2019 begins, the transfer will be the Huskies' starter.
SEATTLE (AP) — Washington announced former Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason is transferring to the Huskies.
Eason was a five-star recruit from Lake Stevens High School near Seattle. He signed with Georgia in 2016 and started as a freshman, but injured his knee in last season's opener and never could regain his starting job from freshman Jake Fromm. Georgia went to the national title game with Fromm and soon after Eason said he was transferring back home.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Quarterback Jacob Eason said Friday he is leaving Georgia, an expected decision after he lost his starting job to freshman Jake Fromm.
Eason made the announcement on his Twitter account.
"Thank you UGA for an incredible two years," he wrote. "The memories and relationships I have made will truly last a lifetime. I will miss suiting up in red and black, but Athens will always be a place I can call home."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jacob Eason spends part of almost every day with Jake Fromm, the kid who took his job.
Plenty of nights, too. The two Georgia quarterbacks are road roommates, including this week at the Rose Bowl, and Eason has been known to snore.
"I've woken up to a pillow in my face a couple of times," Eason said.
Everybody around the Bulldogs realizes that Eason's relationship with Fromm could be unbearably awkward.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason isn't buying any of Kirby Smart's talk about not knowing whether Jake Fromm or Jacob Eason will start at quarterback for the fifth-ranked Bulldogs on Saturday.
No. 5 Georgia (5-0, 2-0 SEC) at Vanderbilt (3-2, 0-2), Saturday, Noon ET (ESPN).
Line: Georgia by 17 ½.
Series record: Georgia leads 55-20-2.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
The Bulldogs are looking to remain perfect overall and in the SEC on their way to a showdown with Florida on Oct. 28 for control of the Eastern Division. Vanderbilt needs a second straight win over Georgia to split a four-game stretch against Top 25 opponents.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia coach Kirby Smart isn't giving anything away regarding his starting quarterback decision this week.
It's part of his plan to keep Jake Fromm and Jacob Eason competing for the job and to prevent Vanderbilt from knowing his plans.
But Smart also wants his players to practice as if the season has not yet begun. He doesn't want overconfidence to creep in, not with Georgia No. 5 in The Associated Press poll and off to its best start in five years.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Jacob Eason could be moving closer to playing again for No. 7 Georgia.
Coach Kirby Smart said Monday to "possibly count on Eason" playing this week at Tennessee. Eason could return if he continues to recover from a sprained left knee he suffered the first week of the season.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason is back at practice but it's not known if he'll be cleared to play Saturday when the 11th-ranked Bulldogs host No. 17 Mississippi State.
Eason started in 2016 as a freshman but strained a ligament in his left knee in Georgia's season-opening victory over Appalachian State. Touted freshman Jake Fromm has played well since taking over, most notably leading Georgia (3-0) to a victory at Notre Dame in his first college start.
The wave of quarterback transfers across college football has left several Top 25 programs without proven depth at that position.
No. 15 Georgia (0-1) at No. 24 Notre Dame (1-0), Saturday 7:30 p.m. (NBC)
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly sees the same thing on tape that Georgia fullback Christian Payne immediately spotted from the opening snaps of spring practice:
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Quarterback Jacob Eason will not play in No. 15 Georgia's game at Notre Dame after spraining his left knee in last week's win over Appalachian State.
Coach Kirby Smart said Monday that Eason will not need surgery. He said Eason's status will be "week to week" after the Notre Dame game.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — There was no panic on the Georgia sideline when starting quarterback Jacob Eason limped off the field.
Though he's a freshman, backup Jake Fromm already has convinced his coach and teammates he's not easily intimidated.
Fromm led three first-half touchdown drives after Eason sprained his left knee, helping No. 15 Georgia beat Appalachian State 31-10 on Saturday night.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Quarterback Jacob Eason has left No. 15 Georgia's game against Appalachian State because of a left knee injury, leaving the Bulldogs with freshman Jake Fromm to guide the offense.
Eason was hurt on a late hit out of bounds. Mountaineers defensive tackle Myquon Stout was called for a personal foul in the first quarter Saturday.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — There was a glaring omission in Georgia's game-week notes package released to media on Monday — no depth chart for the No. 15 Bulldogs.
Second-year coach Kirby Smart wants to go through the final week of practice for Saturday's season-opening visit from Appalachian State before revealing his starters and backups.
Asked Monday about his starting offensive line, Smart said "We haven't determined it yet."
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A long list of national high school honors made Jacob Eason appear bound for immediate success at Georgia as a freshman in 2016.
The reality of making that big step from high school in Lake Stevens, Washington, to the Southeastern Conference was far different.
Sure, Eason's right arm was as powerful as advertised. Arm strength wasn't enough to make his freshman season a success.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia quarterbacks Jacob Eason and Jake Fromm had the stage Saturday, when the Bulldogs' G-Day spring game was designed to feature the passing game.
The results were mixed, especially for Eason, the sophomore returning starter .
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Jacob Eason says having a year's experience makes for "a whole new world" leading Georgia's offense.
In spring practice a year ago, Eason was only weeks removed from high school in Lake Stevens, Washington. The quarterback's inexperience showed as he started the final 12 games of a disappointing 8-5 season.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Kirby Smart wants Georgia's 18 returning starters on offense and defense to feel the heat of competition this spring.
That includes quarterback Jacob Eason.
Smart opened his second spring practice as coach on Tuesday. Familiarity in Smart's system can make players more confident about their assignments, but the coach doesn't want that feeling of comfort to go too far.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Brice Ramsey, who never rose to the top of Georgia's depth chart at quarterback but finished the 2016 season as the team's starting punter, is transferring.
Georgia said Tuesday Ramsey and defensive back Reggie Wilkerson will complete their degrees in May and then transfer for their final seasons of eligibility. Wilkerson played in five games in 2016.
Kirby Smart capped his debut season at Georgia with a smile.
There were too many frowns for the coach along the way.
A strong running game led by Nick Chubb and Sony Michel in Georgia's 31-23 Liberty Bowl win over TCU on Friday gave Smart more reason to celebrate the decisions by the junior running backs to return in 2017.
TCU (6-6, Big 12) vs. Georgia (7-5, Southeastern Conference), Dec. 30, noon EST.
LOCATION: Memphis, Tennessee.
TCU: RB Kyle Hicks has 954 yards rushing for 12 TDs. He also has 42 catches for 396 yards and two TDs.
Georgia: RBs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. Chubb has 988 yards rushing for 7 TDs. Michel has 753 yards rushing with three TDs.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia freshman Jacob Eason is proving he can be trusted in the closing minutes.
In fact, the young quarterback's best play has come in high-pressure situations late in games, providing confidence that will be needed in Saturday's visit from No. 8 Auburn.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Georgia didn't just bounce back from a flat offensive effort against Florida. By executing in the clutch against Kentucky, the Bulldogs offered a reminder of how effectively they could move the ball.
Everything culminated in redshirt freshman Rodrigo Blankenship's 25-yard field goal as time expired that gave Georgia a 27-24 victory over Kentucky on Saturday night and ended the Bulldogs' two-game losing streak.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Raise a glass to Florida's defense. Maybe even the whole bottle.
The 14th-ranked Gators used a dominant defensive effort — maybe their best of the season — to dismantle Georgia 24-10 on Saturday.
The unit stuffed Nick Chubb, holding him to 20 yards on nine carries, and rattled freshman quarterback Jacob Eason. The Bulldogs finished with a season-low 164 yards — about 239 below their average.
"Defensively, what do you say?" Florida coach Jim McElwain asked.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia is doing nothing to diminish its reputation as Tailback U.
Nick Chubb, Sony Michel and Brian Herrien are carrying the load for the Bulldogs while freshman quarterback Jacob Eason goes through some growing pains.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Jacob Eason has shown flashes of his enormous potential.
Then there are times when he looks very much like a freshman quarterback.
Like this past Sunday, when he threw for only 29 yards in Georgia's victory over South Carolina, the fewest passing yards by the Bulldogs since 1990.
Coach Kirby Smart shrugged off Eason's up-and-down play, saying that's to be expected when you're starting a guy right out of high school.
