Jake Fromm made his decision Wednesday afternoon, opting for the NFL instead of his senior season with the Georgia Bulldogs. From posted his decision in a letter to Dawg Nation on his Twitter account.

Fromm wrote, "This process and decision has been unbelievably difficult, but through much prayer and counsel, I have decided that it is time for me to take on the next challenge in my life and pursue my lifelong dream of playing in the NFL." The junior quarterback continued, "It is with both a humbled and excited heart that I announce this, and I can assure you that this decision was not based on anything other than what I strongly believe is God's will for my life."

His decision leaves the Bulldogs with a decision to make. Stetson Bennett was his backup in 2019. The highly touted 2019 recruit Dwan Mathis had a cyst on his brain discovered and did not play last year. Georgia signed 4-star quarterback Carson Beck of Mandarin High School in Jacksonville, Florida in the 2020 cycle.

The possibility of a graduate transfer quarterback is certainly still possible.

As a freshman, Fromm led Georgia to the 2017 SEC title and an appearance in the national championship. He was projected as a high draft pick going into the 2019 season, but slumped in the latter part of the season.
