Jacob Eason’s time at Georgia is over.
Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason suffered a tumultuous 2017 season.
After getting injured in the season-opener, Eason lost his starting job to true freshman quarterback Jake Fromm.
After backing up the true freshman for the duration of the season, Eason was reportedly on the verge of transferring back home to his native Washington and playing for the University of Washington.
Today, the sophomore announced his plans for transfer from Georgia. While he didn’t specify a new destination, Washington is where he is expected to end up.
Here’s his announcement.
Thank you UGA for an incredible two years. 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. -Skinnyqb pic.twitter.com/2vyMVa0UE0

The expectation is that Eason will transfer back home to Washington. Eason will have to sit out the 2018 season before he can take over the reins for Chris Peterman’s Huskies.
With Fromm holding down the starting gig and incumbent 5-star quarterback Justin Fields who signed with the Bulldogs last month, Eason decided it was time to walk away from the Dawgs.
