The Florida Gators will reportedly steal 5-star QB recruit Jacob Eason away from the Georgia Bulldogs. Eason has been committed to Georgia since July 2014. However, as Chat Sports reported in early November, Eason opened his recruitment after the Bulldogs fired head coach Mark Richt.
Now, it appears that Eason will commit to Florida after visiting the school yesterday.
Sources: QB recruit Jacob Eason told UF players last night he plans on decommitting from Georgia and flipping to Florida.— Graham Hall (@Graham311) December 3, 2015
Hall is the sports editor for the school newspaper at Florida, but is confident that Eason will be playing for the Gators next fall.
The Gators aren't the only team still in the mix for Eason. He's visiting Georgia this weekend and will reportedly consider Miami (FL) now that Richt will coach the Hurricanes.
Eason is the No. 2 QB recruit in the nation and the No. 5 overall player in the country. Hailing from the state of Washington, Eason can attend essentially any school in the country he wants. He's looking for a pro-style system, which is exactly what Florida runs.Back to the Florida Gators Newsfeed
