Jacob Eason made the smart decision to keep his commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs despite the coaching upheaval that took place since he decided. It’s not unusual for Eason to make smart decisions. The Gatorade National Football Player of the Year from Lake Stevens High School in Washington holds a 3.83 GPA — as well as lots local passing records. In fact Eason is such a good student, he’ll arrive on campus in Athens in January, getting a head start academically (and with football) during the spring term.
Eason briefly reconsidered his options after Georgia moved on from head coach Mark Richt to new chief Kirby Smart. But as he told DawgNation: “Georgia is the best place for me, and I couldn’t be more excited.” Coach Smart might be just a little more excited than Eason. He described himself as “thrilled.”
