It shouldn’t have taken this long, the Washington Huskies finally named redshirt junior transfer Jacob Eason their starting quarterback.
Eason transferred to Washington from Georgia where he lost the starting job to Jake Fromm. Eason, a native of Lake Stevens, Washington, was the 2015 Gatorade National Player of the Year. He sat out last season due to transfer rules and studied under Jake Browning.
