Jacob Eason’s departure for the NFL Draft leaves an opening under center for Washington football with three potential starters entering the spring (or whenever football actually begins this year). And for Lake, who has been tasked with one tall order after another since Chris Petersen stepped down, this decision isn’t as clear as some might think.
Redshirt sophomore Jacob Sirmon, redshirt freshman Dylan Morris, and true freshman Ethan Garbers are all expected to compete for the spot. The amount of meaningful collegiate game experience between them? Zero. But that doesn’t mean that the competition won’t be just as heated as last year.
