Everybody seems to have an opinion on UGA’s quarterback battle.

Here’s what one of the state’s top college prospects had to say about it on Tuesday:

The prospect is Mecole Hardman, and he’s a 4-star receiver from Elbert County High School. And @skinnyQB10 is Jacob Eason, the nation’s No. 1 prospect at QB from Lake Stevens, Wash., who is committed to UGA (he’s also ranked as the country’s No. 1 overall recruit).

Now to the disappointment of some UGA fans, Eason won’t be able to help out the Bulldogs this season because he’s a rising senior in high school. He will report to UGA in January.

For this season, UGA’s QB situation is a hot mess. Competing for the No. 1 job are three quarterbacks with limited experience – Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta and Jacob Park.

If that’s not confusing enough, Mark Richt also confirmed to the AJC on Tuesday that the Bulldogs are also recruiting UVA transfer Greyson Lambert, who would be eligible immediately to play.
