SI.com does the big splash story on Jacob Eason. The quote that caught my eye:
Durant, who has tutored a handful of talented prospects, including Max Browne, the No. 1 quarterback in the 2013 class, says there is no comparing Eason to any other passer—including, yes, Stafford. Eason, Durant says, is “too unique.”
Well, we may not be able to compare their passing skills, but we sure can compare their recruiting hype. I’m just curious – between Stafford and Eason, the two highest profile commitments of Mark Richt’s tenure, who do you think has gotten the most recruiting attention both from the media and the fan base?
Right now, I’d say Stafford, but Eason’s coming on strong. And he’s still got plenty of time to erase the gap. Not that he’s gone out of his way to draw it. It’s just the nature of the times we live in. And how weird is that to say when you’re talking about the difference between 2005 and 2015?
