The Georgia Bulldogs had a magical season, going 14-1 while defeating Alabama in the National championship game. Led by quarterback Stetson Bennett, the Bulldogs secured their first national title since 1980. However, it’s easy to forget that Bennett didn’t begin the year as Georgia’s starting signal-caller. That title belonged to junior quarterback JT Daniels, who started off the year strong before succumbing to oblique and lat muscle injuries. In Daniels’ absence, Bennett took over and kept the starting job all the way to the title. After the season, Daniels informed the Bulldogs that he would be transferring. On Wednesday, the 22-year-old announced his transfer destination, per Bleacher Report.
Quarterback JT Daniels announced Wednesday that he is transferring from the University of Georgia to West Virginia.
Daniels intends to play at West Virginia in the 2022 season after transferring from Georgia. Not only does his move to play for the Mountaineers present him with another chance to start, but it also reunites him with former USC coach Graham Harrell, who coached him during his time with the Trojans and is the current offensive coordinator at West Virginia.
A former five-star recruit, Daniels went 7-0 in his career as a starter for the Bulldogs, completing 69.5 percent of his passes while throwing for 1,935 yards, 17 touchdowns and just five interceptions in nine games played.
Daniels will now get a chance to show what he can do away from Georgia with another starting gig potentially under his belt with the Mountaineers.
