Jacob Eason started all 13 games for the Georgia Bulldogs as a freshman.

Sophomore Jacob Eason, who was Georgia's starting quarterback when the 2017 season began, is expected to transfer to Washington, the Seattle Times reported Tuesday.

With Fromm holding down the starting gig and incumbent 5-star quarterback Justin Fields who signed with the Bulldogs last month, Eason decided it was time to walk away from the Dawgs.

Assuming Eason transfers to another FBS program, he will be forced to sit out next season before having two years of eligibility left.

Eason came to Georgia as a heralded five-star recruit and Gatorade National Player of the Year.

In his interview, John revealed that he was a fan of the former Fifth Harmony singer and admired her music. Fifth Harmony has continued as a quartet and released their self-titled third album previous year .


But when he sprained his knee against Appalachian State, Fromm did such a good job replacing him that by the time Eason was cleared to return after missing three full games, Fromm remained the starter.

Eason announced via Twitter on Friday that he is transferring out of Georgia. I did the best thing I thought I could do: be there for Jake.

He added: "You could be mad about it, you could sulk about it all season, but I took what happened and did what I could with it". Fromm took over and led the Bulldogs to the SEC championship and a berth in the College Football Playoff semifinals, where they beat Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl to advance to the finals.

Should Eason choose the Huskies, it would give him a year to learn the team's system while providing UW with flexibility. He will have to sit out 2018, but with Jake Browning a senior, he will have a great shot to the starting job in 2019. 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.

While nothing has been confirmed, there are reports that Eason could be set for a move home.
