Former USC quarterback JT Daniels chooses transfer destination

Former USC starting quarterback J.T. Daniels announced Thursday on social media that he is joining the Georgia Bulldogs for the upcoming season.

In this week's edition of Cover 4 Live, the DawgNation team talks all about the Daniels addition and what it means for the future of the Georgia offense, Newman, Vandagriff and everything in between. After losing former starter Jake Fromm to last month's NFL Draft, Georgia welcomed ex-Wake Forest starter Jamie Newman in January. If Daniels is eligible, he and Newman would make for an intriguing quarterback battle in Athens this fall.

Daniels was a former 5-star quarterback in 2018 recruiting cycle, ranked only behind Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields. He started as a true freshman for the Trojans in 2018 but tore his ACL and meniscus in the 2019 season opener. He brings Power 5 experience to Georgia, after playing his true freshman season as the starter for a 5-7 USC squad. In 11 games that season, he compiled 2,672 passing yards, 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

At one time, it was reported MI may have an interest in Daniels, who lost the job at USC last season to freshman Kedon Slovis.

Slovis' success in 2019 led to Daniels entering the transfer portal in the offseason, and Tennessee was thought to be in the mix.
