UGA Football: Kirby Smart Comments On QB Competition


UGA football coach Kirby Smart had a lackluster debut season with the Georgia Bulldogs.

In 2017, he will be looking to take the program to the next level and it will all begin with quarterback play.

Luckily for Smart, he has two very young, talented quarterbacks who will by vying for the position.

The two players competing for the starting gig are true sophomore Jacob Eason, who earned playing time as a starter last season, and Jake Fromm, the No. 3 signal-caller in the 2017 recruiting class.

This week, Smart appeared on “The Paul Finebaum Show” to discuss the competition.

“(Eason’s) also got a little competition going as well, this spring, with a young man by the name of Jake Fromm,” Smart said. “That part has helped as well. I think it’s been good to have Jake in meetings, and (Eason) realizes: Hey, this kid is coming up on my tail pretty quick.”

A legitimate competition may be exactly what the Bulldogs need.
