After redshirting as a true freshman at TCU in 2013, offensive lineman Eason Fromayan is transferring to Georgia Tech.  Multiple outlets reported the news late Tuesday.

Fromayan played his high school ball at Milton High School in Alpharetta, Ga., and according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, he plans to file for a hardship with the NCAA that would allow him to play immediately with four years of eligibility remaining. 

The NCAA currently allows transfers to apply for such waivers when facing difficult life or family circumstances.  Starting in the 2015-16 academic year, however, athletes who transfer will no longer have the opportunity to apply for a hardship that would give them immediate eligibility, but they will instead have the chance to have a year added to the back end of their career if they qualify. 

TCU’s official athletics website lists Fromayan as a 6-5, 280-pound tackle.  Redshirt junior Bryan Chamberlain started seven games at right tackle for the Jackets last season, and redshirt sophomore Chase Roberts could compete with Errin Joe for the other tackle spot after starting three games in 2013.
