Jacob Eason's High School Coach Reassures Georgia Fans: "Put The Razor Blades Away...He's A Bulldog"

Georgia fans want to know who will be taking over for longtime head coach Mark Richt, but they're also concerned about hanging on to some of Georgia's top commits. No recruit is of bigger concern than five-star quarterback Jacob Eason, who is now set to visit Florida. Eason's high school coach Tom Tri wouldn't be too worried if he was a Georgia fan, though. He spoke to about his quarterback, and believes he will stick with UGA.

“Tell those folks in Georgia to put the razor blades away,” Tri told DawgNation. “He’s a Georgia Bulldog right now and once the school gets their new head coach in place and Jacob and his family get to meet him, I don’t really see him wavering too much."


“Of course I could put my foot in my mouth as he commits to Florida but I’d highly doubt that,” Tri said. “I think Jacob is just keeping his options open now. He wants to wait this out and see what’s going on at another school before he firmly commits again to Georgia.”

Eason has been committed to Georgia since July 2014, and plans to enroll in January, so it makes sense that he wants to make sure he's making the correct decision without Richt around. However, Florida will have to really leave an impression, and he'll have to feel very uneasy about whomever takes over at Georgia, to make a late flip.
