Georgia lands commitment from former 5-star recruit, USC quarterback JT Daniels
No coach in recent college football history has proven to be a better recruiter of the quarterback position than Kirby Smart. Now, the leader of the Georgia program has done it again.
The Bulldogs are poised to add another five-star signal-caller to the roster in Athens as USC transfer JT Daniels has announced his transfer to Georgia.
The redshirt sophomore will not be eligible to play at Georgia next season due to NCAA transfer rules, unless he is given a waiver by the NCAA to play immediately. Daniels redshirted in 2019 after getting injured in USC’s season opener.
The southern California native was rated as the No. 1 quarterback prospect in the 2019 recruiting cycle before he decided to reclassify into the 2018 class.
During his brief time on the field in college, Daniels has thrown for 2,672 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He won the job at USC as a true freshman despite the fact he left high school after his junior season and was not able to enroll early at USC in order to participate in spring football.
Daniels was named 2017 Gatorade National Player of the Year, Max Preps National Player of the Year, National High School Coaches Association Player of the Year and USA Today All-USA first team and threw for 12,014 yards, 152 TDs and 14 interceptions in three seasons for California high school power Mater Dei.
