You can read his full statement below.

This is big news for Washington and the NFL. It’s also not too surprising. Chris Petersen retired, and that’s usually a good sign it’s time to bounce to the NFL if you’re able to.

Eason arrived at Georgia as one of the most hyped quarterbacks in America before finding himself at Washington. The young man can sling it.

He won’t be the first quarterback to come off the board, but he’s going to have plenty of teams interested. He’s been very strong for Washington since arriving on campus.

He’s got a big arm, he can make all the throws you want and he’s got good awareness of what’s going on around him.

Plus, he wins a lot more than he loses. That’s something you always want to see in your quarterback.

We’ll see what he does in the NFL, but he had a very productive college career.
