A day after former Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason was officially named Washington's starter, sophomore backup Jake Haener has chose to leave the program, the school announced.

Eason signed with Georgie as a five-star recruit from the 2016 recruiting class and quickly saw the field with 16 touchdowns and 2,430 passing yards in his freshman season.

If that was to happen League One would be reduced to 23 clubs with the number of relegation places reduced from four to three. They have had their first six matches this season suspended and were kicked out of the League Cup.

He played in all 13 games for the Bulldogs in 2016, starting 12 of them. Eason transferred and sat out last season under NCAA transfer rules. He suffered a knee injury in Georgia's 2017 opener against Appalachian State and never reclaimed the starting job from Jake Fromm.

Eason was expected to land the starting job after transferring to the Huskies but was in an extended competition with sophomore Jake Haener throughout spring practice and into fall camp.

A 6-foot-6 redshirt junior, Eason has two years of eligibility remaining. A day earlier, Washington coach Chris Petersen announced Eason would be the starter for the opener against Eastern Washington next week, but indicated Haener would play.
