Georgia QB, California native JT Daniels discusses playing in the South
Although it took a few weeks to finally get healthy enough to play, Georgia quarterback JT Daniels has been excellent in his first two starts against Mississippi State and South Carolina.
Particularly against Mississippi State, Daniels became the first Georgia quarterback to throw for over 400 yards in his debut as the Dawgs won 31-24.
Daniels is a California native who transferred from Southern California in the offseason, and has adjusted to life in the South. The former 5-star spoke with SEC Network’s Marty & McGee this week, and said he feels right at home in SEC country.
“I went to the South one time in my life for the Manning Passing Academy and absolutely loved it,” said Daniels. “I love the environment, I love how much football matters out here, and how involved people are with everything going on.
“It’s been a great time ever since I stepped on campus and especially since I started playing ball.”
Georgia fans are likely disappointed they could not get Daniels for the most important games of the season, losses to Alabama and Florida. However, Bulldog fans will have a couple more opportunities to watch Daniels sling it around as Georgia wraps up the regular season with a game against Vandy this week, and a bowl game down the road.
