Jacob Eason announces departure from UGA

Jacob Eason announces departure from UGA

Eason announced the news via his Twitter account on Friday afternoon. He didn't specified where he will transfer. If that happens, he would have to sit out the 2018 season before being eligible in 2019. He completed 55.1 percent of his passes with 16 touchdown passes and eight interceptions in 2016, when the Bulldogs finished 8-5. This allowed true freshman Jake Fromm to take the reins, and he wound up leading the Dawgs to the national championship. He would then have two seasons of eligibility after sitting out.

After just a couple snaps in 2017, Georgia fans never got to know what Eason had became after beating out Fromm in the offseason.

This does not come as a surprise based on a series of events that seems likely to push Eason back to third string next season. He is a native of Lake Stevens, Washington, and during his initial recruitment in 2014 Eason was present at Chris Petersen's first spring practices as head coach.
