The former 5-star recruit has made it official.

Jacob Eason made his transfer destination official this week. The Georgia quarterback is going home.

The former 5-star recruit officially announced that he's headed to Washington. Eason transferring into the Huskies' program had been rumored for a while, but it wasn't official until this week.

Eason started as a true freshman for Georgia in 2016 and began the 2017 season as the starter. However, he suffered an injury early in the Bulldogs' season.

Jake Fromm replaced Eason under center and Georgia just kept winning. So, Kirby Smart opted to stick with Fromm when Eason recovered.

Georgia made it all the way to the College Football Playoff national title with Fromm, who played well against Alabama in the championship game loss. The Bulldogs will be moving forward with him under center.

So, Eason is transferring out. He's going home to Washington.

Eason made it official a couple of days ago. "Good to be home!!" he tweeted.

Eason will likely have to sit out the 2018 season and then he'll have two years of eligibility remaining. He's a huge addition to Washington's program.
