A reigning knight from Georgia
The first blush of the arrival of such a top-rated quarterback blinds many to the overall implications of this sweet twist of good fortune. After all, I certainly cannot blame you if you check out his 2016 recruiting profile and stare in awe. He was the top-ranked prospect in the state, second-ranked quarterback, and fourth-ranked prospect in the nation. Those are lofty projections. Eason earned each and every one.
He committed to Georgia. But now, he’s coming home. Home to Washington. Home to the Huskies.
I S.E.E some S.E.C insight
The arrival of all that talent is fantastic for the team on paper. But let’s pause and think about a different angle on all of this…the engima of the SEC has been a puzzler until now. But things are about to change.
We know that following the 2017-2018 NCAA football season, the South Eastern Conference will be the focus of national attention this season. That gives that conference a huge advantage. We also know that the season opener will find Washington pitted for the first time against the Auburn Tigers. The winner of that game has a leg up on earning a bid for one of four NCAA Playoff Game slots. Neither team is familiar with the other. But Jacob Eason is familiar with both. And he is transfering to the Washington Huskies. Now it becomes an even better bit of news received today, doesn’t it? Jacob Eason, a true team-changing talent, also brings invaluable information about his former conference to the Huskies.
