The freshman phenom seemed to be taking the starting job from Brice Ramsey and Greyson Lambert and it looks like we might have confirmation. According to, Eason was told he'll play the entire game next Saturday against North Carolina.

Lambert is going to become the second-stringer while Ramsey will be the third-string quarterback. Eason has been working with the No. 1 unit in practices for some time now so it was only a matter of time until his No. 1 status became official.
