Five-star QB Jacob Eason officially commits to Georgia

Five-star Class of 2016 quarterback Jacob Eason ended the speculation about where he will play his college football on Tuesday, as he announced that he officially announced he will be commiting to the Georgia Bulldogs.

Eason has been committed to the Bulldogs for 17 months.

However, once it was announced that Mark Richt had reached an agreement to step down as the Georgia head coach and ultimately landed with the Miami Hurricanes, the Florida Gators appeared to emerge as a serious player.

Ultimately, Eason stuck to his word and made his commitment to the Bulldogs official.

Eason had another official visit at the University of Georgia this past weekend, where he met in person with new head coach Kirby Smart and offensive coordinator Jim Chaney. It appears that the Lake Stevens, Washington native likes what he experienced in Athens and now he will be a contender for early playing time with the program.

Eason has already filled out his financial aid forms with at UGA and plans to enroll in January.

Georgia fans can now breathe a sigh of relief.
