There will be a flurry of new signal callers in the Pac-12 North division in 2020 as a result of Eason’s depature, with Washington, Washington State, Oregon and Oregon State all plugging in new starting quarterbacks, while Stanford will likely go with David Mills and Cal will welcome the return of a healthy Chase Garbers.
