UGA QB Jake Fromm Leaving for NFL

January 8, 2020

ATHENS - Junior UGA QB Jake Fromm has announced that he’s leaving for the NFL Draft. 

The three-year starter announced his decision after the Bulldogs finished the season with a 12-2 mark and a win in the 2020 Sugar Bowl over No. 7 Baylor. The move comes after months of speculation about if Fromm would depart early for the NFL. The deadline for early entry into the NFL Draft is Janurary 17, 2020. 

Fromm has been one of the most successful quarterbacks in UGA history - helping the Bulldogs win the SEC East three seasons in a row and the SEC and Rose Bowl Game in 2017. Fromm finished his first three years of college football with 8,224 career passing yards, 18 interceptions and 78 touchdowns. 

Fromm was considered the No. 5 quarterback prospect by ESPN for this draft cycle after the 2019 SEC Championship Game. Fromm’s have sets up one of the biggest unknowns heading into the offseason since Kirby Smart’s first season in 2016. 

The Bulldogs will likely be a top-ten team once more in 2020. This fall’s schedule features a slew of notable games including the Labor Day night opener against Virginia in Atlanta, at Alabama, Auburn and the Gators in Jacksonville.
