Report: Jacob Eason plans to flipping from Georgia to Florida

Since news broke that Mark Richt is out as the Georgia Bulldogs head coach, everyone has been speculating what that means for the future of five-star quarterback Jacob Eason.

Eason, who is one of the top two quarterback in the Class of 2016, had planned on enrolling at the University of Georgia in January.

However, despite the fact that his financial aid agreement papers had been signed, his status was up in the air following Richt’s departure. Add in an official visit to the Florida Gators and there was some immediate fear in Athens.

Well, it now appears that the Bulldogs’ nightmare could become a reality.

According to rumors making the rounds on social media, Eason has informed members of the Florida football team that he plans on flipping his commitment from Georgia to Florida.

Of course, that is purely a rumor and there doesn’t seem to be much evidence backing up the claim at this point.

Eason’s own high school coach has said that the signal-caller is loyal and that his visit to Florida could just be a favor for his father. There are also reports that Eason could follow Richt to Miami.

So, while at least one person is reporting Eason to Florida, it would be wise to hang on to your seats before having too emotional of a reaction.
