Breaking: Georgia QB JT Daniels Transfers to West Virginia

Published

ESPN’s Pete Thamel announced on Wednesday that Georgia quarterback JT Daniels will transfer to West Virginia.

Daniels reportedly called Neal Brown and announced his commitment to the WVU football program on Wednesday morning. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound transfer spent two seasons at Georgia in 2020-21, compiling a 7-0 record as a starter. Prior to his stint in Athens, Daniels ran into current WVU offensive coordinator Graham Harrell during his pair of seasons playing for USC in 2018-19.

Daniels chose West Virginia over Oregon State and Missouri.

“It definitely helped knowing Graham coming into it and having a really good relationship with him,” Daniels said of his selection. “Knowing that I trust that offense and that system, and I believe in it. I also feel really comfortable with Coach Brown and the ideas that he has and the way that he runs a program.”

Of the offensive schemes Daniels will inherit, he told ESPN, “Going up and down the roster, I feel like they have very, very good pieces everywhere. 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.”
