The addition of transfer JT Daniels single handily altered the expectations for this coming season for West Virginia. And now that’s becoming even more apparent by Daniels officially landing on the Maxwell Award watch list.

The Maxwell Award is presented annually and goes to the top college football player in the country. It offers players to watch before each season as a way to predict possible winners and provide fans and media players to track throughout the season. Alabama quarterback Bryce Young won the honor after last season.
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.
