The high school coach of Jacob Eason said his commitment to UGA is “in a holding pattern,” according to the SeattleTimes.com’s Sandy Ringer.
After Mark Richt was fired Sunday, the former UGA coach told reporters that he advised Eason “just to be patient and see who the next guy is (at Georgia).”
It appears Eason is taking Richt’s advice, but Lake Stevens (Wash.) coach Tom Tri believes the 5-star QB may explore a couple of schools if UGA does not make a decision quickly.
Reports came out Monday night that Eason has already lined up an official visit to Florida.
The Seattle Times also noted that Washington State coach Mike Leach visited Eason on Monday to let him know the door was open. The Cougars have been one of the top stories in college football this season, improving to 8-4 after three sub-.500 seasons, and Leach is considered one of the most gifted offensive minds in the sport.
Eason is one of the prized recruits in UGA’s class and has attracted several other top prospects to join him. If he does decide to attend another school, it could set UGA back greatly.
