Michael Carvell spent some time out in Washington checking out Jacob Eason. Eason’s dad was pretty candid about the recruiting process. Basically, Bobo made the introduction, sold the program, Schottenheimer was able to keep things going after the transition and Mark Richt’s been the glue that’s held it all together.
That’s what he’s going to do, sign with Georgia – unless Coach Richt goes somewhere and they are going to run Georgia Tech’s offense. Then maybe he would change his mind.
This post isn’t so much about Eason’s preferences as it is about how well run Georgia’s recruiting seems to be these days. Eason is the highest profile recruit in Georgia’s next class, separated by the width of a continent, still being chased hard by the likes of Jim Harbaugh and Chris Petersen and despite that, it doesn’t sound like the staff has even broken a sweat dealing with the aftermath of Bobo’s departure. Pretty impressive.
Maybe Fletcher Page is on to something here.
