Five-star quarterback Jacob Eason has been committed to Georgia since July 19, 2014.

But, if you believe one reporter, the heralded prep signal-caller is preparing to switch allegiances.

Eason, from Lake Stevens, Wash., is the No. 5 player in the country and the No. 2 quarterback, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He took an official visit at Florida this week after the Bulldogs fired Mark Richt, opening up his recruitment.

Eason still has a planned two-day visit to Georgia this weekend. UGA is expected to name Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart its next head coach after this weekend as well.

Miami also is set to announce Mark Richt as their new head coach Friday morning.

In other words, Eason’s recruitment remains a developing situation. Expect┬áSmart and Georgia to make a strong push to retain Eason as a member of the ’16 class, and expect Richt to try to woo the quarterback to Miami as the first gem of his own Hurricanes tenure.

Further complicating the story: Feleipe Franks, a four-star quarterback ranked as the fifth-best pro-style signal-caller in the 2016 class, recently flipped from LSU to Florida. It’s rare that two top 5 quarterbacks in the same class would head to the same school.

At the least, it sounds like Florida made a strong impression on Eason. Coach Jim McElwain has the Gators in the SEC Championship Game in his first year. He also turned Garrett Grayson into a third-round NFL draft choice at Colorado State.

Still, in some ways, the recruiting of Eason has only just begun in earnest.
