Kirby Smart: “I think Jacob is a Great Quarterback…”

After Day Eight of Fall camp the media talked with head coach Kirby Smart about the progress of the team. The head ball coach hit on the offensive line, a few of the wide receivers and the secondary. However, his comment about Jacob Eason stood out the most.
Kirby Smart commented about the young quarterback’s progress and how hard he works at his job. He mentioned how the sophomore gets as much time in the film room as he can and makes an effort. After a question of Eason’s ability to be a student of the game,  Smart ended the topic quickly.  He answered the question with high regards to the quarterback and made sure the media knew what he thought of Eason.

‘’I think Jacob is a great quarterback.  I think he’s somebody that understands our system.  He works really hard at it.  Jacob comes in and meets extra every chance he gets.  So, a lot of the things that you have heard about Jacob may not be true.  I think he does a tremendous job of trying to lead the team, of being ‘The Guy,’ just like Jake Fromm tries to do.  He also studies really hard and has grown a lot as a player, and he still has a long way to go.  And I think he’s the first to acknowledge that.’’
