How does 5-star quarterback commitment Jacob Eason feel about UGA right now? That’s a good question considering the noise that has surrounded the program after a tumultuous 1-3 skid in October.
Eason’s father told DawgNation how supportive they were of Mark Richt and the UGA staff earlier this week. How is it sitting with Eason himself? DawgNation caught up with him on Friday after his team improved to 10-0 after a 61-10 victory.
The big question: What would he do if Richt somehow was no longer the head coach at UGA?
“I will have to sit down with my family and figure everything out,” Eason said. “But it is Georgia you know? It is SEC football. Richt has been there for awhile and I doubt that will happen. But if it did, I wouldn’t stress about it too much.”
Eason has been committed to UGA since July of 2014. He’s also been a busy behind-the-scenes recruiter urging other prospects to come to UGA. What would he say to another UGA target regarding all the uncertainty regarding the program?
”I just think just stick with it,” Eason said. If you really want to go there then it will be the place no matter what happens. There is going to be some adversity wherever you go. Just stick with it.”
The nation’s No. 2-rated quarterback offered a much-needed message of support to the UGA coaching staff.
“I think they are doing a fine job,” Eason said. “They are going through a little rough patch, but I’ve put my faith in them.”
