News that may not be all that shocking based on the turn of events of the season, but is still a big deal in college football, quarterback JT Daniels has made the decision to enter the transfer portal, according to a report by ESPN’s Pete Thamel.
Daniels, who came to West Virginia for the 2022 season started off the year strong despite the team losing and then eventually fell off production and lost his starting job to Garrett Greene, will now be seeing his unprecedented fourth college team of his career.
Sources: West Virginia QB JT Daniels intends to enter the NCAA transfer portal. He'll have at least one year of eligibility, and it could two years depending on whether he could get a medical redshirt for 2019. He's been the quarterback at USC and Georgia prior to WVU.

The former top prospect out of California still 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 grant 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.
