“He has been all-in with UGA from the get-go.”

You know what the best part is about the news that Jacob Eason will sign his financial-aid papers with Georgia on Friday?

Now the media can ask Richt and Schottenheimer if Eason will be the starter in 2016.  Good times!

  1. Seems like a good kid. Did I mention I met him at the airport a few weeks ago? Oh yea I did. My airport scouting report–tall.


  2. He will still compete with the veterans to be a starter per the coaches.

      Eason looks a lot like Matthew Stafford in the linked article.

      Stafford didn’t earn the starting QB position for good until the eighth game of his freshman season.

      There are no guarantees this time, either.

    I hear that Richt Is holding off naming Ramsey as the starter until after Eason signs the papers because they worry that he won’t commit if he’s coming in behind a guy with 2 more years of eligibility. Only joking, but that seems like something that I would read in the comments section.

    Hope this kid can live up to the expectations, because I can’t remember anyone coming in here with the same level of expectations, even Stafford. If he’s half as good as advertised, he’ll be an All American by 2017.

    Wonder if he’ll get some reps with the “1s” once he signs his paperwork.

    Yeah, he’s going to have some high expectations. Is Manning the last QB to come in with expectations this high?

    But Michael Bird told me that Eason was going to Michigan because Schotty sux and Harbaugh rulez.

    So with “unlimited contact” can they technically start coaching/working with him now?!

      Technically yes, but it’s still risky because if something were to happen and he were to sign somewhere else UGA would be on the hook with secondary violations for every time they contacted him that was above and beyond normal recruiting guidelines (at least that’s my understanding of what happened to LSU a little while ago). So if I’m Mark Richt I’m not sure how much time I want to invest because I don’t want to get bit if everything hits the fan for some reason.
