Georgia kind of backed into it. Eason was committed to Richt and Bobo and their pro style offense for a few years. When Bobo left for CSU and Richt was fired, Kirby Smart was able to keep Eason committed to Georgia because the QB cupboard was bare and they were going to continue running the pro style offense that Eason wanted.
Fromm is a Georgia kid and had always wanted to go to Georgia, but Richt never offered, so he committed to Alabama. When Smart got the Georgia job he immediately offered Fromm and he flipped to Georgia. He's one of those kids that had a dream school and was going there no matter who was ahead of him on the depth chart.
Fields brings another dimension to the position with his legs that Georgia hasn't had in a number of years. And I think they're trying to go more dual threat QB as well, which Eason and Fromm are not.
Smart has shown he's not afraid to play freshman and Fields knows it'll be an open competition when he gets there. I think Fromm sticks it out no matter what. As I said earlier though, I could see Eason jumping ship if he doesn't get the job back.
The Krajewski (sp?) kid was being mentioned as a plan B if Fields went somewhere else. Also another QB from NC that's committed to ECU. Can't remember his name, but I read that Georgia and Cuse were still keeping in touch with him despite the ECU commitment.
I think we'll get solid players who will thrive in the Babers O. "4-star guys", high-3, regional and some national recruits. But not the top-of-the-game blue chips, the guys that everyone in the country has offered. I think we'll get WR's from that group, but not QB's.
And the way the defense is looking up, wouldn't be surprised to see some talent pile up there, especially if the system is very similar to what is played in the NFL.
Not surprised, no way he was going to beat out Fromm. That is two top rated QBS to transfer out of UGA recently since they couldn't pass Fromm on the depth chart. Eason transferred to Washington and will probably start next year.
