Jacob Eason heard the news about UVA QB Greyson Lambert’s decision to transfer to UGA on Wednesday. He discussed it with both the Bulldog coaches and his father.
“Jacob and I talked to Georgia about it, and we think it’s a great move,” his father told the AJC. “The only thing that matters is winning games. And if this guy can help us get one more win, then it’s all worth it.”
Eason is the nation’s No. 1 QB prospect, and he’s committed to UGA. Eason will enroll early in college with the Bulldogs next January, and he’ll be eligible to compete for UGA’s QB spot for the 2016 season. Meanwhile, Lambert will have two seasons to play for the Bulldogs.
“I think they were worried about a depth, so (Lambert) would be a big help,” Eason’s father said. “You’ve got to have arms in camp. Who knows what’s going to happen when Jacob reports to campus next year? We’ll just have to play that by ear.
“Competition is always a good thing. It brings out the best in everybody, including Jacob. This (transfer) doesn’t change anything about how we feel about Georgia. From our standpoint, we think it’s a great move.”
Eason just finished his junior year at Washington’s Lake Stevens High School.
