The Jacob Eason transfer rumors have been swirling since the former five-star quarterback lost his starting job to true freshman Jake Fromm after suffering an injury early in the season.
While nothing has been confirmed, there are reports that Eason could be set for a move home.
According to a report from Adam Jude of the Seattle Times, the Lake Stevens native is set to join the Washington Huskies barring a “last-minute change of heart.”
Eason did comment on the report, but would neither confirm nor deny the move.
This is how the 2015 Gatorade National Player of the Year commented on his future following the Georgia Bulldogs’ loss to Alabama in the College Football National Championship Game on Monday night.
“Going to sit down with my family and figure that out,” Eason told The Seattle Times’ Stefanie Loh in Atlanta. “Right now, I’m just spending time with this team … and we’ll go from there.”
Asked if he has talked with UW coaches about a possible transfer, he said: “I have not. That’s illegal.”
During his freshman campaign, Eason threw for 2,430 yards with 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. This season, he completed just 4-of-7 passes for 28 yards.
If Eason does in fact transfer, he will be forced to sit out the 2018 college football season before being eligible to suit up in 2018.
