Eason started the season as Georgia's starting quarterback but sustained a sprained left knee ligament forced him out of the season opener. Eason threw for 2,430 yards 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

Georgia lost Monday's National Championship Game and the Bulldogs are about to lose one of their quarterbacks.

No, K.J. Carta-Samuels won't be around anymore, not even for his final season of eligibility in 2018, as he has made a decision to transfer but Eason will be the next in line.

While Eason has not confirmed whether he will transfer or not, he is clearly contemplating a change.

A five-star member of Georgia's recruiting class back in 2016, 247Sports.com had Eason as the second-best pro-style quarterback in the class and the best overall recruit from the state of Washington.

"Going to sit down with my family and figure that out", Eason said.

If he lands at Washington as expected, he would have to sit out a year as Huskies QB Jake Browning plays his senior season. "Right now, I'm just spending time with this team ... and we'll go from there". Eason attended nearby Lake Stevens High School.

"I have not", he said. Browning would hold on to his job, obviously, in 2018 and then give way to Eason the next season and he would then have two years of eligibility. He was immediately replaced under center by freshman Jake Fromm, who came so close to leading the Bulldogs to their first national title in almost four decades.
