Jacob Eason was the starting quarterback for the Georgia Bulldogs as a true freshman last season, but after getting injured in UGA's season-opening win over Appalachian State, he has been replaced by current freshman Jake Fromm. Head coach Kirby Smart has not said that Eason will get his starting job back when healthy, and with Justin Fields - the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2018 class - committing to the Bulldogs, there's a strong chance that Eason will decide to transfer. If he does, here are his five most likely destinations:
5) Florida State Seminoles
Yes, the Seminoles have Deondre Francois, but he probably won't be around following the 2018 season and we've seen that his backup, freshman James Blackman, isn't someone how exactly inspires confidence. FSU would likely give Eason a chance to start right away after his redshirt year and compete for national championships.
4) Stanford Cardinal
Eason is a West Coast kid and prototypical pro-style quarterback. Enter Stanford and head coach David Shaw, who have a track record of turning out NFL-ready quarterbacks. Eason already has elite arm talent, but his decision-making needs to improve. That is the area that Shaw excels at teaching.

3) Michigan Wolverines
In terms of pro-style offenses, Michigan may be the most successful with it since Jim Harbaugh took over as head coach. The Wolverines were heavily involved in Eason's initial recruitment, and with both current and future questions at the quarterback position, Eason could step right in and provide this young, talented team with some stability.
2) Miami Hurricanes
Head coach Mark Richt was the biggest reason why Eason committed to Georgia in 2014, and he nearly decommitted when UGA fired Richt. Now at Miami, it would be very easy for Richt to use that relationship with Eason to bring the former 5-star recruit down to Coral Gables.

1) Washington Huskies
Eason is a Lake Stevens, Washington native, and the Huskies were one of his finalists before committing to Georgia. Returning to his home state certainly makes a lot of sense, especially considering that current Washington quarterback Jake Browning only has one more year of eligibility remaining after this season. Eason would keep Huskies among the top teams in the country.
