Even Without Jake Browning, Washington's 2019 Quarterback Room Will Be Loaded

True freshman Jake Fromm entered and didn't surrender the starting position the remainder of the season. Eason is originally from Lake Stevens, Washington so it only makes sense that he would return to his home state and play football. He will have to sit out 2018 but he could redshirt the season without losing any eligibility.
For what it's worth, and as expected, Eason said he has not made a final decision in his future. Good luck out there Jacob, Dawg nation wishes you the best of luck and hopefully we see you in the playoff again one day!
Eason went to high school in Lake Stevens, Wash. which is 45 minutes from UW. Georgia's third quarterback, at least for now, will be walk-on Stetson Bennett, who redshirted this past season while working with the scout team.
The Bulldogs then finished the season with a national championship berth.
After his team's recent loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide, Eason refused to offer much clarity regarding the rumors that he had already made up his mind to transfer away from Georgia.
Should Eason choose the Huskies, it would give him a year to learn the team's system while providing UW with flexibility.
Washington quarterback Jake Browning is coming off another stellar season, but didn't play well enough in 2017 to cement himself as an early round NFL Draft pick. Washington's recruiting class of 2018 includes two quarterbacks ranked inside 247 Sports' top 100 prospects: Colson Yankoff, a dual-threat from Idaho, and Jacob Sirmon, a pro-style passer from Washington.
In his career at Georgia, Eason completed 55.1 percent of his passes for 2,430 yards and 16 touchdowns.
