Jim McElwain: Georgia's Jacob Eason is the 'future of the SEC'



The Florida Gators tried to poach five-star quarterback Jacob Eason at the end of the last recruiting cycle, so it's no surprise that they're very high on the Georgia starter.

"He's the future of the SEC," UF coach Jim McElwain said Monday during his weekly news conference. "He's that good."

Eason is seventh in the league in passing yards (1,366) with nine touchdowns and five interceptions as a true freshman.
