Ever since Mark Richt stepped down as the head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs just a few weeks ago, there has been a question of whether top-ranked quarterback in the class of 2016 Jacob Eason would actually still end up in Athens. It seems like we will be getting a clear answer very soon.
Over the last few weeks, Eason has began taking official visits to other programs around the country, namely the Bulldogs’ rival Florida. According to The Herald in Everett, Washington, Eason’s home state, he has cut his decision down to those two schools while still being committed to Georgia.
“Right now, I’m still committed to Georgia,” Eason said. “I took my trip to Florida and I’m still waiting to see who Georgia hires as (offensive coordinator). I have a couple options opened but I’m still committed so we’ll see what happens.”
“I’m still committed (to Georgia) but I’m going to have to decide between the two. The positives and negatives and all that stuff,” Eason said. “Over this year, with coach Richt getting fired and all that stuff, (Florida) kind of popped up. The coaches have been wanting me to come down for awhile so I came down and I liked it a lot. It’s a great school and a great opportunity there too. It’s going to come down, ultimately, to what I decide and where I feel comfortable.
Whatever happens at this point, it is surely going to be interesting over the next few weeks. We don’t know what is going to happen, but whoever ends up with him will likely be getting a national-championship type guy.
