That’s according to a report in the The Herald of Everett, which is a newspaper only miles away from Eason’s Lake Stevens, Wash. home.
“Right now, I’m still committed to Georgia,” Eason said in the report. “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. “I’m still committed (to Georgia) but I’m going to have to decide between the two. The positives and negatives and all that stuff. Over this year, with Coach Richt getting fired and all that stuff, (Florida) kind of popped up. The coaches have been wanting me to come down for awhile so I came down and I liked it a lot. It’s a great school and a great opportunity there too. It’s going to come down, ultimately, to what I decide and where I feel comfortable. I’ll come home and talk with my family and my dad and figure everything out.”
Monday was the first day Eason was able to meet new UGA coach Kirby Smart in person. Smart was able to watch Eason throw while at a camp at Alabama, but for the most part this is the first time the two have really spent time together. Smart held his introductory press conference on Monday and talked about recruiting a lot.
Unlike many recruits in the 2016 cycle, Eason is enrolling in his college of choice early. That means he has to make his mind up likely before New Year’s Day. He’s participating in the US Army All-American Bowl in Texas in January and is set to fly to his college from that event.
