The Bulldogs' five-star quarterback visited Washington over the weekend, according to one report.

Jacob Eason officially left Georgia this weekend. The Bulldogs' quarterback departed Athens, Ga. on Sunday.

The former five-star quarterback recruit started at quarterback in 2016 and at the beginning of the 2017 season. Eason suffered an injury early in the year, though, and was replaced by true freshman Jake Fromm.

Eason never got his job back, as Fromm led Georgia to the national title game. He announced his intentions to transfer out of the program earlier this month.

The West Coast native has been mentioned for a couple of big programs. Washington is reportedly the favorite; some reports say he's already decided on the Huskies.

A report from says Eason already made a visit. He was reportedly at Washington on Sunday. confirmed via a source that Georgia transfer quarterback, Jasob Eason is visiting Washington today.

The rumors have been swirling wildly since Eason was granted his release last month following the National Title game, but the question has been “when” regarding rumors that he was going to transfer to Washington.


We learned that Eason stopped in at the Husky basketball game and that this is close to being done at this point.

Eason, the No. 2 pro-style QB in the 2016 recruiting class, will have to sit out the 2018 season, pending an NCAA waiver. He'll then be eligible to start in 2019.
