Attributes: The first thing you notice when he steps on the field is Eason's long frame. He's a legit 6'5" and he weighed in recently at 210 pounds. The next thing you notice is his elite arm. He can throw the ball nearly 70 yards in the air and he typically throws a nice, tight spiral. Lastly, while he'll never be a dual-threat type signal-caller, Eason is athletic enough and nimble enough to move around and keep plays alive.
Things To Work On: At a recent full-team scrimmage, Eason did not look comfortable. He hurried throws and was very inaccurate. However, at the Rough Diamonds Showcase event held at Interlake High School last weekend, Eason appeared on point with his throws and accuracy. Many scouts have some concerns about his decision-making abilities at the next level since he is typically very late on his reads, but that is something that can be coached out of him under the right tutelage.
Position Projection: He's a quarterback all the way.
Recruiting Buzz: Eason committed to Georgia last summer and his love of the program has not waned, even when the coach who was recruiting him, Mike Bobo, left for another job. With offers from across the country and it being a down year, especially on the West Coast, for quarterbacks, Eason is still a top target for programs. Washington is still trying to stay in the mix, but it will likely take the firing of Mark Richt at Georgia for him to open things back up.
