The University of Washington announced in February via their team recruiting twitter account that Jacob Eason former Five Star Georgia quarterback is officially transferring and joining their team.

Eason the 6'5” 235 Quarterback with a rocket for an arm had his issues down in Athens, but he is coming home. The Chris Petersen led Washington Huskies have been an explosive team, putting out talent on both sides of the ball. After spending years building Boise State from nothing all the way to a BCS buster, Petersen's sights are on the mountain top, a College Football Playoff National Championship. After compiling multiple top 25 recruiting classes since he took over as head coach, Eason might be the final piece to put them over the top.

2018 will be Jake Browning's senior year, leaving the door open for Jacob Eason to take over as the starter in 2019. Eason will have a veteran receiving core filled with returning juniors and seniors as well as some pretty decent young guys (see 2018 four stars Marquis Spiker and Austin Osborne). Spending a year learning from the offensive guru that is Chris Petersen, will bode well for Eason, and help him build rapport with his teammates. I see this season as a year of growth for Eason maturing on and off the field and finally growing into the star he was meant to be.
