Eason went to high school in Lake Stevens, Wash. which is 45 minutes from UW.
Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason announced what had been expected Friday via his Twitter account, informing Bulldog Nation that he plans to transfer.
On the other side, Washington's starting quarterback is Jake Browning, who would be a senior next year. He started 12 games as a true freshman in 2016, completing 55.1 percent of his passes while throwing for 2,430 yards with 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions, but was relegated to a backup role after he returned from injury.
A knee sprain forced Eason to the sidelines for the Notre Dame game this season, where freshman Jake Fromm took the helm and never looked back. After Richt was sacked, Eason hinted that he might go to another school but wound up staying at Georgia under new coach Kirby Smart in 2016. Fans who watched the aftermath of the National Championship loss likely saw Eason wait for Fromm and put his arm around him as they left the field.
"You still prepare like it's the same as past year like you're the man", Eason said.
Eason is expected to transfer to the University of Washington, near where he went to high school.
While no official decision is made, Georgia is looking crowded and Washington may need a quarterback for the 2019 season.
The two coaches who recruited Eason - Mike Bobo and Mark Richt - are no longer at Georgia. But Eason can't be blamed after seeing Fromm's success as a freshman, and he could certainly find a clear opportunity to start elsewhere. Despite the unfortunate circumstances, he really bonded with Fromm and worked hard to help him prepare for the games.
