As the Washington Football team continues to stockpile an incredible roster for 2018, they have some good news for 2019. QB Jacob Eason has officially transfered to University of Washington.

The Washington Football team recruiting class of 2018 seems to be full of great news recently. But this time, we have slight twist to the recruiting headlines. You see, the NCAA transfer rules, as they now stand, require an athlete who transfers before completing their degree to sit out a season before they are once more eligible to participate in NCAA athletics.

Of course, this can ONLY mean one thing: The Washington Football team just got much stronger for 2019, and the reason is that quarterback Jacob Eason has officially transfered to the University of Washington.

Eason impressive as starting freshman QB

When he was in high school, Eason was a heavily recruited 5-star quarterback prospect for 2016. In fact, he stood 6-foot-5.5 and weighed in at 208 pounds.  As such, he was an athletically gifted young man whose abilities seemed limitless. As a matter of fact, he possessed the right height, great arm strength, durability, and good decision making.   And so, upon arriving in Georgia, he earned a starting role and quickly made headlines.  As a passer, he tossed 370 passes for 204 competions. That was good enough for 2,430 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. And that was just his freshman year.

Unfortunately, the Bulldogs ended the regular season with just a 7-5 record.  However, they did go on to face TCU in the 2017 Liberty Bowl, which they won 31-23.  Against nationally ranked opponents, Eason managed a 2-3 record.   One of those victories came at the expense of then ninth-ranked Auburn.  Auburn happens to be the season opener for the Washington Football team this season.
