Georgia Quarterback Expected to Enter Transfer Portal

    Fresh off of a national championship victory over Alabama, a Georgia Bulldogs’ quarterback could potentially be on the move. According to a report from DawgNation on Monday, redshirt-junior quarterback J.T. Daniels is expected to enter the transfer portal but could remain at the University through the spring in order to graduate.

    The career of Daniels has already been a long journey, and it looks like it will only continue the twists and turns in the future. As a five-star quarterback in the class of 2018, Daniels, the second-ranked quarterback in the nation, chose to go to USC.

    Daniels spent his first two years with the Trojans but was injured in the season-opening game of his sophomore year. After the close of that 2019 season, Daniels would enter the transfer portal for the first time. Despite rumors that the former five-star could wind up at Tennessee, Daniels ended up committing to Georgia.

    Now, after two years in Athens, Daniels looks to be heading into the transfer portal once again, likely as a graduate transfer.

    “Daniels looks to be the first domino to fall — but likely not the last — in the Bulldogs’ annual quarterback room shuffle,” Mike Griffith said for DawgNation in the report.

    Daniels’ most productive season, by far, came during his freshman year at USC. In the 2018 rookie year, Daniels threw for 2,672 yards and 14 touchdowns in 11 games.

    During his two years at Georgia, Daniels never saw action in more than five games. In 2020, his first year in Athens, Daniels had 1,231 yards and 10 touchdowns with only two interceptions in four appearances. Then, last season, Daniels had 722 yards and seven touchdowns in the four games he played in.

    It is important to note, Georgia quarterback J.T. Daniels is not officially in the transfer portal. It was reported on Monday that he is expected to enter it, but has not officially done so as of Tuesday.
