Jacob Eason is happy to be home.

The Lake Stevens, Wash., native transferred from Georgia to Washington in January following a season as back up to freshman Jake Fromm in Athens.

Eason told the Seattle Times the decision to return to Washington was "pretty easy."

He enrolled in Washington in late March, and made an appearance at the Huskies’ spring game.

Eason, a rising junior, will have to sit out a season. He will be on the scout team and is fifth on the Huskies’ quarterback depth chart.

“Yeah, it’s going to be a different year for sure,” Eason told the Times, “but .. I’m still going to compete like I can play. Every practice, every rep you’ve got to get better and better. So that’s what I’m going to do.”
