JT Daniels finds a new home with the Georgia Football program
The Georgia Football program has seen a ton of talent leave Athens, Georgia over the past few years, but have now landed two transfer quarterbacks enter their program in the same offseason. After already landing graduate transfer quarterback Jamie Newman, the Bulldogs have also landed University of Southern California transfer JT Daniels.
The new NCAA rule allowing for immediate eligibility has not been granted as of yet. There has been no news as to whether or not Daniels will be granted an immediate eligibility waiver to this point. It looks like 2021 will be Daniels’ chance to take over as the starting quarterback in Athens.
However, the Bulldogs also have a five-star recruit waiting in the wings in 2021 recruit Brock Vandagriff. Should Daniels start in 2021, the Bulldogs would then be potentially endangering the status of another five-star quarterback, just as they did with Justin Fields.

Fields, the Heisman Trophy finalist and 2021 top prospect now for The Ohio State Buckeyes, transferred from Georgia after reportedly being the victim of a racial slur and when the Bulldogs chose Jake Fromm over him. This Vandagriff situation seems like it could be heading in a similar direction.
Daniels decided to leave the Trojans after his job was usurped by true freshman phenom Kadon Slovis in 2019. While only playing one game in 2019, Daniels is coming off of a 2018 campaign where he threw for over 2,600 yards for 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions; he completed 59 percent of his passes in his only season as the starter at USC.
From Fromm, to Newman, then potentially JT Daniels, the Bulldogs have a bit of a logjam at the quarterback position heading into the future. It will be interesting to see how this quarterback situation plays itself out for the Georgia Football program.
