The West Virginia Mountaineers have landed the commitment of Georgia Bulldogs transfer quarterback JT Daniels. This move comes after he lost his starting job to Stetson Bennett last season. The Georgia Bulldogs went on to win the 2022 National Championship by beating SEC rival the Alabama Crimson Tide. Daniels has played quarterback for the Georgia Bulldogs and the USC Trojans in his college career. It will likely come to a close with the West Virginia Mountaineers.

In limited action this year with the Georgia Bulldogs, JT Daniels completed 68 passes for 722 yards, seven touchdowns, and three interceptions. The year before with the program in more starter action he completed 80 passes for 1,231 yards, ten touchdowns, and two interceptions. General hope with the transfer is he can establish himself as an NFL Draft prospect after a year with West Virginia. Last season in the Big 12 the Mountaineers finished 6th with an overall record of 6-7 and a Big 12 record of 4-5. The down year could be boosted this year with a new quarterback under center for the program.

JT Daniels has showcased the talent and the ability to play quarterback at a Power Five level. Hopefully, the West Virginia Mountaineers will be a good fit and can help the transfer quarterback drafted in the 2023 NFL Draft. The Big 12 will have some exciting football next season and Daniels will be a part of that. Time will tell if it works out well.
