Jacob Eason is officially leaving the UGA football program.

The former five-star recruit was expected to transfer after losing his starting quarterback job to Jake Fromm, who led the Bulldogs to a national championship appearance, and he confirmed the news on Friday.

Eason took to Twitter to release a brief statement, thanking everyone for his time in Athens.

“Thank you UGA for an incredible two years. The memories and relationships I have made will truly last a lifetime. I will miss suiting up in red and black, but Athens will always be a place I can call home,” Eason wrote.

Eason is expected to return home and play for the Washington Huskies.

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.

With Eason no longer on the roster, the Bulldogs will have just two scholarship quarterbacks on the team — Fromm and Justin Fields, another five-star prospect.
