Washington junior QB Jacob Eason has been working with former BYU and Kansas QB Jake Heaps this offseason.
Eason (6'5/235) transferred to Washington in February, and will have to sit out the 2018 campaign. It could be a blessing for the former five-star quarterback, as he'll get a chance to sit and watch Jake Browning, and working with a fellow former five-star recruit like Heaps on his footwork and accuracy could provide big dividends. He should be the starting signal-caller for the Huskies in 2019. Mar 19 - 1:54 PM

Georgia junior QB Jacob Eason transferred to Washington.

Eason, a Washington native, was reported to be heading to the Huskies when he announced his transfer intentions in mid-January. It's official, now. The 6-foot-5, 235-pounder ranked as Rivals' No. 7 overall prospect coming out of high school as part of the 2016 cycle and went on to throw for 2,430 yards with a 16/8 TD/INT ratio while starting as a true freshman. He began the 2017 campaign as starter, too, but was supplanted by incoming five-star frosh Jake Fromm after he sustained a knee injury in the season-opener against Appalachian State. Fromm would go on to lead the Bulldogs to the national championship game. At Washington, Eason will have to sit out the 2018 season in order to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations. That works out fine for the Huskies, who already have senior Jake Browning atop the quarterbacking depth chart. Once Browning's moved on following the 2018 season, it'll be Eason's show. This is a perfect match for both player and team.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason will transfer.

Eason (6'5/235) did not specifically mention a preferred destination in his transfer tweet, but the Seattle Times' Adam Jude reported earlier this week that the Washington native would be returning to his home state to play for the Huskies. The sophomore gunslinger will have to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations and would have two years eligibility remaining come the start of the 2019 season. That timing works perfectly for Washington, as QB Jake Browning -- coming back for the fall -- will no longer be in the fold at that point. A former five-star recruit, Eason passed for 2,430 yards with a 16/8 TD/INT ratio as a true freshman in 2016. He began the 2017 campaign as starter, but a knee injury sustained in the season-opener forced true freshman Jake Fromm into action. Fromm proceeded to help lead the Bulldogs to the national championship game.

The Seattle Times' Adam Jude reports that Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason will transfer to Washington.

Eason (6'5/235) said after Monday's loss to Alabama in the national championship game that he had not made a final decision as to whether or not he would transfer, but it would appear that the Lake Stevens, Washington, native will be heading back to his home state. Eason lost his job to Jake Fromm after he suffered a left knee injury in the 2017 season-opener. During a healthy freshman campaign, the former five-star recruit threw for 2,430 yards (55.1-percent completions) with a 16/8 TD/INT ratio. Before he's eligible to take the field for Washington, he'll have to sit out the 2018 campaign to satisfy NCAA regulations. That works out well enough for the Huskies, as junior QB Jake Browning has already announced that he will be returning for his final season in Seattle.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that sophomore QB Jacob Eason had a "really good practice" on Tuesday.

"He's got to stay in tune to it, he's got to battle and fight, and I think he's done that," Smart said. Eason has not started a game since he went down with a knee injury in the season-opener. While he has been practicing for the past few weeks, freshman Jake Fromm looks to be more or less entrenched as starter at this juncture. With Georgia sitting at 6-0, we don't expect them to switch horses in midstream unless Fromm begins to truly falter. Fromm was still taking snaps ahead of Eason in practice on Tuesday.

During the media viewing period of Tuesday's practice, sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) took snaps with the second-team offense.

Eason finally made his return to the field in the fourth quarter of Saturday's blowout win over Tennessee after missing the previous three contests due to a knee injury. Georgia HC Kirby Smart refused to divulge a starter between Eason and freshman Jake Fromm on Monday, saying only that the practice week would determine who will earn the right to lead the offense against Vanderbilt on Saturday. With the Bulldogs sitting at 5-0, it's fair to wonder if this is Fromm's job to keep until he shows signs of faltering.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) will likely travel with the team to Saturday's game against Tennessee.

"That may mean that Eason is cleared enough to play in an emergency, which would still be a step ahead of where he was for the Mississippi State game," writes the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Seth Emerson. "Eason continues to wear a brace over his left knee, where he sprained a ligament in the opener against Appalachian State." Eason practiced all week and "move[d] around well," according to Emerson. We might not know more about Eason's status until tomorrow prior to kickoff.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) worked with the second-team offense in practice on Tuesday.

"He was on target with his throws, was able to rollout and throw, and took quick-step drops," writes the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Seth Emerson. "There was no visible limp or wincing, with the only reminder of the injury being the large gray brace over his right knee." On Monday, UGA HC Kirby Smart indicated that Eason's status for Saturday's game against Tennessee has not yet been determined. That he has not already been ruled out is a good sign as to his current health. Should Eason need another week to rest up, true freshman Jake Fromm would start in his place for a fourth consecutive game.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) threw passes to true freshman Jake Fromm on the sideline during Monday's practice.

With a brace on his sprained left knee, Eason was also seen jogging. He mostly did the same last week. It doesn't appear that Eason is close to a return to the field. Fromm will continue to start until he can.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Mississippi State.

Eason managed to take part in practice to a limited degree this week -- he has been throwing -- but the Bulldogs are going to let him rest up for at least one more week before they consider throwing him back into a game. Jake Fromm will once again start in his place on Saturday.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) was able to practice in portions on Monday.

Eason missed the last two games with the knee injury he suffered in the opener against Appalachian State. There's still no timetable for his return, and if he's unable to go, freshman Jacob Fromme will get his third straight start against Mississippi State.

Georgia QB Jacob Eason was able to walk without crutches before Saturday's game against Samford.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart recently labeled Eason as "week-to_week." Freshman quarterback Jake Fromm will start in Eason's place again on Saturday.

Seth Emerson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that "it doesn’t look as if [Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason] will return anytime soon."

Georgia HC Kirby Smart labels Eason "week-to-week." The sophomore quarterback sustained a sprained knee ligament in the opener against Appalachian State and sat out the Notre Dame game. Jake Fromm will start Saturday's game against Samford if Eason is ruled out.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) will not play in this weekend's game against Notre Dame.

Eason sustained a scary-looking knee injury after taking a late hit on the sideline in the first quarter of Saturday's win over Appalachian State. True freshman Jake Fromm handled starting duties the rest of the afternoon following the injury and will start this weekend's intriguing showdown with Notre Dame. In terms of silver linings, surgery is not expected to be necessary, here, and Georgia is hopeful that Eason will be able to fully recover before the end of the season. Bulldogs HC Kirby Smart referred to the sophomore gunslinger as "week-to-week." Until he returns, Fromm will have an opportunity to test drive the car.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason left Saturday's game against Appalachian State with an apparent knee injury.

This could be a big one. Eason looked to injure his knee on a late hit while scrambling to the right sideline just outside of his own end zone in the first quarter. He was subsequently replaced by five-star true freshman Jake Fromm in the game. There is no further information as to the exact nature of Eason's injury, but the concern here would be that it could potentially involve damage to the ACL. We will provide updates as more comes to light.
