True freshman Jake Fromm took over for Eason and never relinquished the job, leading Georgia to the national title game. Fromm lead the Bulldogs to the National Championship game and Justin Fields - the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2018 class - committed to the Bulldogs.
That Eason would transfer to Washington makes sense on the surface, as he hails from Lake Stevens, not far north of Seattle.
According to a report from the Seattle Times, Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason is expected to transfer to Washington now that Georgia's 2017 season has concluded. He has a strong arm and an ideal frame for a quarterback, standing 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds.
He would have to sit out one year, according to the NCAA transfer rules.
After his team's recent loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide, Eason refused to offer much clarity regarding the rumors that he had already made up his mind to transfer away from Georgia.
Eason was once a five-star recruit and arguably the top quarterback prospect in the nation, but Kirby Smart chose to stick with freshman Jake Fromm as the starter this season after his star sophomore went down with a knee injury in the opener but was cleared to return halfway through the year.
Eason was 4 of 7 for 28 yards this past season. He passed for 2,430 yards and 16 touchdowns with just eight interceptions as a true freshman and completed 55 percent of his throws.
