Is it time for Georgia to hit the panic button on five-star quarterback Jacob Eason’s interest in Florida? Not exactly, but they may want to hover their hand over the button. 

After Mark Richt’s parting, the Washington prospect has since visited Gainesville for an official visit and appears to have come away impressed, according to The Herald of Everett

Following the Florida visit, where do the Kirby Smart coached Bulldogs stand with Eason?

“I set up a trip there to go check that out and ended up really liking it,” Eason said. “There’s a lot of good things. Coach Nuss coached at U-Dub and Coach Mac graduated from Eastern Washington and they’ve both got good track records. There’s a lot of good things I got out of that trip.”

Smart was scheduled to meet Eason Monday evening after speaking with him over the phone on a few occasions. Eason admitted he is not ready to make a decision but that he has narrowed his list down to the two SEC East rivals. 

“Right now, I’m still committed to Georgia,” Eason said. “I took my trip to Florida and I’m still waiting to see who Georgia hires as (offensive coordinator). I have a couple options opened but I’m still committed so we’ll see what happens.”

Wherever he decides to play should only further ignite the rivalry between the annual rivals.
