Father of 5-star Georgia QB commit Brock Vandagriff shares family's reaction to Bulldogs landing JT Daniels
With the addition of USC transfer JT Daniels, Georgia’s quarterback room is looking loaded for the next few seasons, particularly 2020 and 2021. Bulldogs fans are understandably thrilled to be adding a highly sought-after former 5-star prospect from the transfer portal, but the UGA faithful is also familiar with seeing former 5-star quarterbacks such as Jacob Eason and Justin Fields transfer out.
As it stands right now, Kirby Smart’s quarterback room is set to be deep with elite talent for 2021 as Daniels (5-star pro-style prospect, class of 2018), D’Wan Mathis (4-star pro-style, 2019), Carson Beck (4-star pro-style, 2020) and Brock Vandagriff (5-star dual-threat, 2021 commitment) are all projected to be on the roster. College football fans have seen the portal giveth and taketh away from teams over the last few seasons, but it sounds like the Bulldogs don’t have to worry about Vandagriff being run off by the addition of Daniels. Jeff Sentell of Dawg Nation recently spoke to Vandagriff’s father about Georgia’s quarterback situation heading into 2021.
“It is not that you value competition but you embrace competition,” Greg Vandagriff told Sentell. “If you are an athlete and you want to be a starter, you have to compete. When you choose a university you choose everything that goes along with that university. From transfer players to players that are already there to changing coaches, you just embrace it. You compete and go out there and do the best you can.”
The older Vandagriff added that Brock was aware he would have competition for the starting quarterback position by signing with Georgia.
“It wasn’t like we were trying to go to Southeast Missouri or UTEP,” Greg Vandagriff said. “We were choosing among the best programs in the country and you are going to play against the best. That’s just part of it.”
