JT Daniels’ decision to transfer from USC to Georgia two months ago felt like a big move at the time but there always was a big asterisk next to that move as it was unclear if the former Trojan signal-caller would be eligible immediately in Athens this fall.

Now we know the NCAA has cleared Daniels to compete with Jamie Newman to compete for the starting quarterback role in Athens entering Georgia’s upcoming training camp. Of course, Newman is also a transfer, he graduated from Wake Forest before arriving in Athens for his final season of eligibility.

If nothing else, Georgia went from losing a three-year starting quarterback with three SEC East titles in Jake Fromm to having arguably the best combination of at the quarterback position in the entire SEC for the coming season.

While Newman has received an incredible amount of hype this offseason, he’s even listed as one of the preseason favorites to win the 2020 Heisman Trophy, the NCAA’s decision to allow Daniels to play immediately casts some doubt on whether the Wake Forest transfer will even win the starting job in Athens.
