Prominent Pac-12 QB announces he's entering NCAA transfer portal
A prominent Pac-12 quarterback is the latest to enter his name into the NCAA transfer portal.
On Thursday, USC quarterback and former five-star prospect JT Daniels announced that he will be exploring his options through the transfer portal. Daniels played in just one game for the Trojans last season before suffering a season-ending injury. Now, it appears that Kedon Slovis could be the guy to beat to be USC’s No. 1 quarterback in 2020.
“I love this university, coaching staff, and team,” Daniels said. “To me it is in my best interest to explore all my options going into the 2020 season. I will remain in contact with the coaching staff through the process. USC remains one of my optionss, and that door has remained open for me. Fight on.”
Daniels has been at USC for two seasons and had a solid freshman campaign in 2018. That year, he threw for 2,672 yards and 14 touchdowns with 10 interceptions while completing 59.5 percent of his passes. The Trojans finished the year 5-7.
Slovis stepped in for the injured Daniels in 2019 and is now entering the 2020 campaign as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate. Slovis threw for 3,502 yards and 30 touchdowns with just nine picks last fall.
