Here's where the top QB is probably headed.

The No. 2 quarterback recruit in the 2016 class has officially left Georgia. Former five-star QB Jacob Eason has departed the Bulldogs' program.

Eason, who lost Georgia's staring quarterback job after he got hurt and was replaced by Jake Fromm, left Athens, Ga. this morning. He had previously announced his intentions to transfer earlier this month.

Several of Eason's now-former teammates have taken to social media to wish him well.

"Don’t even know where to start with this one, but what a ride 10. Can’t believe you’re headed out today, because this wasn’t how we planned it or thought it was gonna be. Im going to miss the hell out of you my boy and the house ain’t gonna be the same without you in it. I’m excited for you to go ball out again and see you sling it around. Hell of a friend, and hell of a quarterback, love ya 10," wrote tight end Isaac Nauta.

"Crazy you left this morning brethren, Athens will never be the same. We made enough memories for a lifetime and had plenty of laughs. Go ball on the west coast skindog," wrote long snapper Hudson Reynolds.

At this point, it's not official where Eason will be headed. However, it's been widely reported that he'll end up at Washington.

Eason is a native of The Evergreen State. He'll likely have to sit out the 2018 season and then will be eligible to start in 2019 with two years of eligibility.
