It came from Pratt’s verified Twitter account and there’s a local connection. Eason doesn’t know Pratt personally, but there’s a reason why he told his 2.9 million Twitter followers about the nearly 6-foot-6 signal caller.
“He graduated from my high school a few years ago and grew up here,” Eason told DawgNation on Sunday night.
Eason is currently rated as the nation’s No. 2 quarterback. He’s already signed his financial aid papers with UGA and will enroll in January.
