Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason is expected to transfer to Washington "barring a last-minute change of heart", the Seattle Times reported Tuesday.

Jake Fromm does not look to be relinquishing the Georgia starting quarterback job anytime soon which may prompt a decision from backup QB Jacob Eason.

A five-star member of Georgia's recruiting class back in 2016, had Eason as the second-best pro-style quarterback in the class and the best overall recruit from the state of Washington. Eason attended nearby Lake Stevens High School. "Right now, I'm just spending time with this team ... and we'll go from there". He originally committed to Mark Richt's staff but chose to stay on and play for Kirby Smart despite attempts from Florida and Washington to flip his commitment after Richt left the program.

Georgia lost Monday's National Championship Game and the Bulldogs are about to lose one of their quarterbacks.

"I have not", he said.

Jacob Eason started the 2017 season as Georgia's starting quarterback, but a knee injury in the season opener opened the door for true freshman Jacob Fromm. He started 12 games as a freshman last season and finished with 2,430 yards, 16 touchdown passes and eight interceptions.

If Eason does in fact transfer, he will be forced to sit out the 2018 college football season before being eligible to suit up in 2018.
