Lake Stevens quarterback Jacob Eason, one of the nation’s top recruits for the Class of 2016, announced Saturday on Twitter that he has made a verbal commitment to Georgia.
Eason, listed at 6 feet 5, 205 pounds, has scholarship offers from many of the top programs in the country, including Alabama, Notre Dame, Texas, Florida State and Washington, among others. Eason attended most of the Huskies’ spring practices, throwing passes with friends on the sideline while wearing UW gear.
UW does have a quarterback committed for the Class of 2015 in Jake Browning, regarded as a top-10 quarterback recruit in the country by scouting services.
Eason had made an unofficial visit to the Georgia campus this weekend. He begins his junior season at Lake Stevens this fall, and won’t be able to sign a letter of intent with Georgia until February 2016.
