JT Daniels Poised to Shake Up WVU QB Room

Published

on

JT Daniels will officially be in Morgantown come fall, and WVU Football offensive coordinator Graham Harrell is excited to get him started.

Daniels signed a grant-in-aid, allowing him a final season of eligibility for use at West Virginia.

Prior to this most recent relocation, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound transfer spent two seasons at Georgia playing for head coach Kirby Smart in 2020-21, compiling a 7-0 record as a starter. He finished his pair of seasons 148-for-213 for 1,953 yards and 17 TDs. Prior to his stint in Athens, Daniels ran into current WVU offensive coordinator Graham Harrell. Daniels spent two 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.”

Daniels joins an already seemingly-full quarterback room of Garrett Greene, Will “Goose” Crowder, and Nicco Marchiol, barring any transfer portal entries ahead of fall camp.
