Jacob Eason’s high school coach: ‘He’s a Georgia Bulldog’

Don't freak out UGA fans, it will be alright.

Georgia fans are understandably nervous at the moment. The star of their touted 2016 recruiting class, five-star quarterback prospect Jacob Eason, is currently in Gainesville on a recruiting trip. 

Eason has been solid in his commitment to UGA, but since the Dawgs parted ways with head coach Mark Richt, it appears 247Sports‘ No. 1 ranked signal caller may be considering the Gators. 

Take a deep breathe Georgia fans, according to Dawg Nation, Eason’s high school coach Tom Tri believes you have little to worry about. 

“Tell those folks in Georgia to put the razor blades away,” Tri said. “He’s a Georgia Bulldog right now and once the school gets their new head coach in place and Jacob and his family get to meet him, I don’t really see him wavering too much.”

“In all honesty Jacob is one of the most loyal guys I’ve ever met,” Tri said. “He’s been wearing the red and black around here for the last year-and-half and I don’t see that changing a whole lot unless he absolutely falls in love with somewhere else.”

Sounds like it would take a lot to pull Eason away. If the rumors of Kirby Smart landing in Athens are accurate, the new Georgia head coach – known as an outstanding recruiter – will have plenty of time to reassure the prospect that is likely on the top of his radar.
