It’s still up in the air whether Jacob Eason, the No. 7 player and No. 1 QB in the 2016 class, will look to transfer out of Athens, Georgia after the season. However, based on some insider info, Rusty Mansell of Georgia’s 247sports site, believes that the sophomore gun-slinger will be gone after the year and that two major programs – one of them Michigan – will likely get a visit after Georgia’s season.
Jake Fromm, a freshman, took over for Eason after he was injured and has led the Bulldogs to a 9-1 season. No. 1 recruit Justin Fields is also headed to Athens, Georgia next year.
The Wolverines are now starting Brandon Peters, a redshirt freshman, at quarterback. Dylan McCaffrey is also in the quarterback system as well as incomers Joe Milton and Kevin Doyle.
Eason would have to sit out a season if he decides to transfer anywhere.
