Jacob Eason, Georgia’s newest quarterback commitment, is from the town of Lake Stevens. Washington, a suburb of Everett. The two towns lie along the 5 Freeway north of Seattle. Needless to say Eason’s commitment to UGA during his swing through the South was unexpected and his local paper reached out for an interview.
“I really didn’t have any intention of committing on my way down there,” he said. “I was going to go check out a few schools and make my decision a little later. But I went to Georgia and everything fit perfectly. I love the school, the area, the coaches and the academics. I figured, ‘Why wait?’ I didn’t want to lose the spot.”
“I had high expectations going into Athens,” Eason said. “Everything was awesome. I love it down there.”
“They’ve always been the school,” Eason said. “The coaches have been the most involved. Coach Bobo came all the way up to Washington to watch me throw twice. That’s more than any other school and that’s a four-and-a-half-hour flight. That’s a lot of commitment.”
“Now I can just go back to Lake Stevens and focus on the high school season,” he said. “The future is taken care of. I can focus on high school and winning a state championship with my team.”
