SEATTLE -- Washington announced former Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason is transferring to the Huskies.

Eason was a five-star recruit from Lake Stevens High School near Seattle. He signed with Georgia in 2016 and started as a freshman, but injured his knee in last season's opener and never could regain his starting job from freshman Jake Fromm. Georgia went to the national title game with Fromm and soon after Eason said he was transferring back home.

The day before signing day in college football, Washington made it official with a tweet . Eason passed for 2,458 yards and 16 touchdowns with eight interceptions in 16 games for Georgia.

He will have sit out this season to fulfil NCAA requirements, but he would be on target to replace senior Jake Browning in 2019.
