Just a reminder, as Jacob Eason prepares to take an official visit to Gainesville, Florida, that what’s going on right now for Georgia as McGarity figures out whom to hand the reins to next is bigger than one recruit, even one as important to the team’s immediate future as Eason appears to be.
As I keep insisting, as big a mistake as it is for a school to hang on to an underperforming head coach solely for the reason of holding together a recruiting class, it’s just as big a one to rush into a hiring decision to replace an established head coach for the same reason. For a program like Georgia, there will be other quarterback recruits, but get the next coaching hire wrong and you’ll be paying for that decision a lot longer.
Besides, who can blame Eason and his dad for being prudent at this point? In any event, there’s still time for Georgia’s next head coach to preserve the relationship.
Georgia’s got enough questions as it is about getting the right man in. Rushing to get someone here just to keep Eason in red and black only makes that tougher. Take the right amount of time to get it right.
