Georgia TE Isaac Nauta had a strong freshman season in 2016, working with then-starting QB Jacob Eason to catch 29 passes for 361 yards and three touchdowns.

With Jake Fromm in 2017, Nauta’s production dropped drastically, as he finished the year with nine catches for 114 yards and two scores.

For that reason and many other, more personal reasons, Nauta will miss Eason in 2018 and beyond, as Georgia’s former starter will transfer to a new school. Nauta posted an emotional farewell to the outgoing quarterback on Instagram on Sunday afternoon:

“Don’t even know where to start with this one, but what a ride 10,” the post reads. “Can’t believe you’re headed out today, because this wasn’t how we planned it or thought it was gonna be. Im going to miss the hell out of you my boy and the house ain’t gonna be the same without you in it. I’m excited for you to go ball out again and see you sling it around. Hell of a friend, and hell of a quarterback, love ya 10”

It’s tough to see moments like this happen to good friends, but that’s the nature of college football. Eason still has serious NFL potential, but he needs to move on from Georgia to see if he can realize that potential.

It’ll be interesting to see what’s next for Eason, and Nauta will be his biggest fan moving forward.
