Ex-USC, Georgia QB JT Daniels reveals next transfer destination
“Country roads, take me home…” are the lyrics JT Daniels will soon be singing.
ESPN’s Pete Thamel reported on Wednesday that Daniels will be transferring to West Virginia to continue his college football career. He spent the last two seasons at Georgia and entered the transfer portal following the Bulldogs’ national championship run in 2021.
“Going up and down the roster, I feel like they have very, very good pieces everywhere,” Daniels told ESPN. “It feels like a great fit for quarterback. I feel like there’s a really, really, really good team that I’m going to step into and do my part to contribute.”
Daniels was 7-0 as a starter for the Bulldogs.

Daniels had a big freshman year at USC, throwing for 2,672 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2018. His career took a major hit in 2019, suffering a season-ending injury in the first game of the year.
After Kedon Slovis appeared to be the next leader for the Trojans at quarterback, Daniels transferred to Georgia. Injuries and the rise of Stetson Bennett IV hindered Daniels’ ability to solidify the starting job in Athens.
Over his career, Daniels has thrown for 4,840 yards and 32 touchdowns with a 63.8% completion rate. He will still have two years of eligibility to utilize at West Virginia.
