JT Daniels makes official decision on future at Georgia, per report
JT Daniels was expected to be QB1 at Georgia, but due in part to injuries, Stetson Bennett IV stepped into the role and eventually led the Bulldogs to their first national championship since 1980.
With reports stating that Daniels was “expected” to enter the transfer portal as he is set to be within a crowded quarterback room that will include Brock Vandagriff, Carson Beck, Gunnar Stockton, and a potentially returning Bennett, it appears that the former USC transfer’s decision has been made.
The former 5-star recruit didn’t start the 2020 season as D’Wan Mathis got the call against Arkansas and was later replaced by Bennett. After Bennett was injured against Florida, Daniels started the final 4 games, throwing for 401 yards in his Bulldogs debut against Mississippi State and going 4-0 in that span.
He started the 2021 season opener against Clemson but didn’t play against UAB due to an oblique injury. He returned the lineup a week later against South Carolina and threw for 301 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Against Vanderbilt, he was 9-of-10 for 129 yards and 2 touchdowns before giving way to Bennett in the 2nd quarter with the game in hand. His final 2 games were against Missouri and Charleston Southern as Bennett would supplant him as starter.
