Should he stay or go? JT Daniels says he's not given much thought about 2021
Georgia’s JT Daniels proved to be one of the best quarterbacks in the SEC in the second half of the season, and that has caused many fans and media members to wonder what might be in 2021.
As Georgia and Daniels continue preparing for Cincinnati in the Peach Bowl set to kick off at noon on Friday, he was asked on a Zoom press conference about his thoughts about next season. As a redshirt sophomore, Daniels is eligible to leave for the NFL Draft, but there is talk about him returning to Georgia to build up his NFL resume in a draft year where there are several experienced QBs set to be picked in the spring.
“Yeah, it’s not something I’ve honestly given too much thought to. This year is going by fast,” Daniels said. “I’m focused week-to-week. South Carolina, I was focused on South Carolina. Missouri, I was focused on Missouri. Vandy, I was focused on Vandy until that was no more. Since then I haven’t gone home since I’ve been in Georgia. I was here through Christmas, here through Thanksgiving. I’ve been here getting ready for the bowl since that Vandy week was over. I really haven’t given too much thought to anything. This week is Cincinnati. Once the off-season comes, I’ll be thinking about the off-season.”
In his Georgia debut against Mississippi State, Daniels completed 28 of 38 passes for 401 yards and four scores, including TD passes of 48 and 40 yards. In that game, he became the 10th QB in UGA history to have four TD passes in a game. He then ended the regular season with 299 yards and three TDs in win at No. 24 Missouri.
