Will Jacob Eason transfer after the season ends?

Jacob Eason's tumultuous 2017 season began with him beating out star freshman Jake Fromm to become Georgia's starting quarterback for the Bulldogs opener.

After suffering a knee injury during the contest, Fromm took over for Eason, who never saw the field again after the freshman sensation led the Bulldogs to the College Football Playoff. With Fromm holding down the starting gig and incumbent 5-star quarterback Justin Fields who signed with the Bulldogs last week.

Bleacher Report ran a full spread on Eason, and thinks he'll transfer following the playoff. Travis Haney of Bleacher Report suggested three possible destinations.

Some close to Eason hinted Washington is the most likely destination. It adds up considering it's essentially the hometown option and one of three schools Eason officially visited back in 2015...

Considering Eason initially committed to Mark Richt's Georgia staff, the Miami Hurricanes cannot be ruled out...

There could also be a wild card, most likely in the Pac-12. One source agreed that Chip Kelly's arrival at UCLA as head coach had caught Eason's eye.

Per NCAA rules, Eason would have to sit out for the 2018 season and would be eligible to start for a team in 2019. The former five-star quarterback might not have a home in Georgia anymore, but he'll certainly draw attention from other major programs.
