Every Sunday, SECCountry.com will unveil its offensive and defensive recruits of the week based on their weekend performance. In order to qualify, recruits must have at least two SEC offers. This week’s SECCountry.com Offensive Recruit of the Week honors goes to Jacob Eason, a UGA QB commit.
SECCountry.com’s Offensive Recruit of the Week: Jacob Eason
Jacob Eason gets the nod for SEC Country’s Offensive Recruit of the Week honors following an impressive performance this past Friday night. The nation’s No. 2 quarterback in the country put up some impressive numbers. He finished the game 14-of-18 with 321 yards and four touchdown passes. Of note: Eason also boomed a punt 46 yards.
On the season, Eason is 69 of 94, has 1,346 yards and 14 touchdowns. The most impressive stat of them all? Zero interceptions.
“I think my team and I went out and performed pretty well,” Eason told the AJC’s SECCountry.com. “My receivers caught all their passes in the pouring rain and my offensive line held their blocks, giving me plenty of time. Our defense held them to a shutout and it doesn’t get much better than that. Overall, it was a great team win.”
Eason will enroll at UGA in January.
