Washington already has a loaded quarterback room for 2018 with senior Jake Browning coming back and two 4-star early enrollees Jacob Sirmon and Colson Yankoff. But the Huskies are leaving a seat open for a potential major addition off the transfer wire.
Jacob Eason, who has been granted his release from Georgia, reportedly visited Washington’s campus on Sunday, according to Ruth Robbins of RealDawg.com.
Eason, who is from Lake Stevens, Wash., picked Georgia over the Huskies two years ago when he was the No. 5 player in the 2016 class. He threw for 2,430 yards and 16 touchdowns as a freshman at Georgia and entered the 2016 season as the Bulldogs’ starter. He sustained a leg injury in the season opener against Appalachian State, and by the time he was ready to return, freshman Jake Fromm was entrenched as the starter.
If Eason transfers to Washington ― or to any program, for that matter ― he would have to sit out the 2018 season per NCAA transfer rules.
