Report: Former WVU QB JT Daniels Commits to Transfer to Rice
After spending just one season at West Virginia, quarterback JT Daniels is on the move to his fourth college program.
Daniels has committed to transfer to Rice, according to a report by ESPN’s Pete Thamel. The former top prospect out of high school, who has endured a roller coaster career with time spent at USC, Georgia and most recently WVU, decided to enter the Transfer Portal two weeks ago following a disappointing season as a Mountaineer.

He started off the 2022 season strong individually despite the team losing, but his production eventually fell off and he lost his starting job to Garrett Greene.
Daniels currently has one final year of eligibility due to suffering multiple injuries and thanks to the added season as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s actually a chance the NCAA could award him an extra year on top of that if he’s granted a medical redshirt for 2019, a year he was only able to throw 34 passes because of a serious injury that ended his season as it started.
Daniels threw for 2,107 yards, 13 touchdowns and 9 interceptions while posting a 61.2 completion percentage. The 2022 season stands as the year he played in the most games and threw the most passes since 2018 at USC. After leaving USC, Daniels transferred to Georgia and led the Bulldogs to a 7-0 start in 2021, but was forced to watch his team finish off their special year and win a national championship with him on the sidelines.
