Video: Jacob Eason makes on-field debut at Georgia quarterback

Throughout the recruiting process, one of the most discussed prospects was the nation’s top quarterback, five-star signal-caller Jacob Eason. Eason ultimately committed to the Georgia Bulldogs after some minor wavering late in the process, and on Friday UGA fans finally got to see the prized recruit slinging the ball.

Eason will be competing for the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback job in his freshman season.

While Georgia fans will need to wait to see if he can win the No. 1 job, they can finally catch a glimpse of Eason throwing in his Georgia uniform for the first time.

Georgia Roundtable shared a video of Eason tossing the ball at practice on Twitter.
