We’ve received an update on the Jacob Eason transfer and it is exactly what everyone saw coming.
On Tuesday, the Washington football program officially announced that the former five-star quarterback will be joining the Huskies after transferring from Georgia last month.
Eason, a Washington native, was expected to head back home from the moment his transfer was announced.
Washington announced the news of Eason’s addition on social media with a “welcome home” video.

Eason will sit out the 2018 college football season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules before he is eligible to suit up in 2019 with two years of eligibility remaining.
That works out perfectly for the Huskies, who will be returning Jake Browning for his senior season.
During his time at Georgia, Eason started as a freshman and threw for 2,430 yards, 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. After entering 2017 as the team’s starter, he suffered an injury in the season-opener before losing the starting job to freshman Jake Fromm, who led the Bulldogs to an appearance in the College Football Playoff.
It will be exciting to see what Eason is able to do back on the West Coast after his year on the sideline.
