Jake Fromm entered the game Saturday for Jacob Eason after he picked up an injury.
Fromm is a freshman quarterback but has a strong recruiting pedigree.
Here’s what you need to know about Fromm.
1. Jake Fromm was a one-time Alabama commit
Before flipping to the Bulldogs, Fromm was a member of Alabama’s recruiting class. But after Kirby Smart became the coach at Georgia, he flipped his pledge and opted to play for the in-state Bulldogs. Fromm is from Warner Robins, Ga., and played for Houston County High School.
2. Jake Fromm was a key figure in Georgia’s 2017 recruiting class
Fromm was a factor in helping the Bulldogs land a number of recruits. He also appeared in two different DawgNation commitment videos, along with 5-star freshman Richard Lecounte. Fromm was the No. 3 quarterback in the 2017 class and the No. 44 player in the country per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
3. Jake Fromm beat out Brice Ramsey for the backup job
Ramsey is a fifth-year senior and had more time in the Georgia system, but Fromm did enough to earn the nod over Ramsey. Smart always had a plan for Fromm to get in the game.
4. Jake Fromm had a strong spring game
Fromm was 14 of 23 passing for 277 yards and 2 touchdowns in the spring game for the Bulldogs, and he did look better than Eason. It’s worth mentioning that Fromm did most of his work against the second team.
“He understands the offense very well. He knows the system, he understands what coverages he’s seeing. I’m excited about Jake Fromm,” Smart said after the spring game.

In his high school career, Fromm put up monster numbers, throwing for 12,745 yards and 116 touchdowns in 46 career games. Fromm is listed at 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds. The Bulldogs are taking on App State on ESPN.
