Lake Stevens senior Jacob Eason, a five-star recruit and one of the country’s top quarterbacks, is set to announce where he’ll play football Tuesday.

Eason tweeted out Monday night: “I would like to thank everyone who has helped me in this process, I will be announcing the university that I will be attending tomorrow.”

Eason is believed to have narrowed his choices to Georgia, where he verbally committed in July 2014, and Florida.

He also took a recent official visit to Washington and had an in-home visit with WSU coach Mike Leach, according to Lake Stevens coach Tom Tri.

The 6-foot-5 Eason led the Vikings to the Class 4A semifinals and threw for 3,737 yards and 44 touchdowns.

Eason’s recruitment had been largely quiet until just a few weeks ago, when Georgia fired longtime coach Mark Richt. That prompted Eason to reconsider his options.
