UGA quarterback commitment Jacob Eason lives nearly 3,000 miles away from Bulldogs first-year offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, but he’s already developed a good relationship with him.
“He looks young,” Eason told the AJC’s DawgNation. “He’s a chill guy. He can like hang out with you like he could be your brother and he’s chill. But then when (it is) time to get serious he gets serious.”
The 5-star prospect told the AJC he’s already gotten a “tremendous amount of advice” from Schottenheimer. The UGA offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach has nine years of experience as an offensive coordinator in the NFL.
“He knows that offense like the back of his hand and I’m excited to get down there,” Eason said. “He’s going to teach me a lot and I’m excited to learn from him.”
The nearly 6-foot-6 senior committed to UGA in July of 2014. He’s already signed his financial aid papers with UGA and will enroll in January. That will be after he participates in the U.S. Army All-American Game in Texas.
