    ATHENS, Ga. -- The home debut of Kirby Smart as No. 9 Georgias coach gained new significance when freshman Jacob Eason was announced as the starting quarterback in Saturdays game against Nicholls.Easons eventual rise to the starting job was widely expected following a preseason competition with 2015 starter Greyson Lambert and Brice Ramsey. Eason, from Lake Stevens, Washington, was regarded by some services as the nations top high school quarterback in this years recruiting class.Eason played behind Lambert in last weeks 33-24 win over North Carolina. Eason completed 8 of 12 passes for 131 yards and one touchdown. Lambert completed 5 of 8 passes for 54 yards.Georgia confirmed early Friday that Eason will start. Current Detroit Lions starter Matthew Stafford is the last Georgia true freshman to start at quarterback. Staffords first start came in the third game of the 2006 season, a 34-0 win over UAB.Georgia (1-0) will use the day to prepare for eight straight Southeastern Conference games, including next weeks visit to Missouri. It will be the opener for Nicholls, a FCS team.Smart hasnt commented on his quarterback decision. He said Monday it is easier for a freshman quarterback to start, thanks to the growth of the passing game in high school.They see so much more, they throw so much more, theyve seen a lot of the defenses before, Smart said. There are a lot more prolific offenses out there in high school football. More teams are throwing in high school football. ... I certainly think quarterbacks come in with more ability to play early.Eason (6-5, 235) looked tall, strong and confident against North Carolina. He displayed his arm strength on a 51-yard completion to Isaiah McKenzie. He also threw a 17-yard scoring pass to McKenzie.Easons rise to the starting job may come as a relief to his teammates after weekly questions about the quarterback competition.It doesnt matter whos in there, Jacob or Greyson or anybody, fullback Christian Payne said Monday.

Its great exposure for our program and a lot of our guys want to see if they can compete at the highest level.NO LETDOWN: Smart insists the Bulldogs can improve everywhere.

He is 10th on the programs all-time rushing list and has seven career games with at least 100 yards rushing. As a sophomore, he set a school record with 1,103 yards rushing.
