LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Former USC quarterback J.T. Daniels will transfer to the University of Georgia to play for the Bulldogs.

Daniels will likely have to sit out the 2020 season due to NCAA rules. Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm is now in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills.

At USC, Daniels played in one game as a sophomore in 2019 before suffering a season-ending injury in the season opener.

As a freshman in 2018, Daniels appeared in 11 games for the Trojans.

Daniels released a statement on April 16 when he entered the transfer portal.

β€œI love this university, coaching staff and team,” Daniels said. β€œTo me, it is in my best interest to explore all my options going into the 2020 season. I will remain in contact with the coaching staff through the process. USC remains one of my options, and that door has remained open for me. Fight on.”

When Daniels went down with his season-ending injury in 2019, he was replaced by true freshman Kedon Slovis who had an outstanding season for USC. He threw for 3,502 yards 30 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. The Pac-12 awarded him the conference Freshman of the Year award.

With Daniels returning from injury and Slovis having a great season, it was turning into a very interesting quarterback battle in Los Angeles. It seemed like Daniels wants to go to another school where he can start right away.
