Report: Notable College Quarterback Enters Transfer Portal Again

JT Daniels, West Virginia Mountaineers Football

West Virginia quarterback JT Daniels appears to be on the move again. 

After transferring from Georgia to the Mountaineers a season ago, Daniels is reportedly looking to enter the transfer portal for a second consecutive year. 

Per ESPN college football analyst Pete Thamel, Daniels will have up to two years of eligibility remaining depending on the status of a medical redshirt claim from 2019. 

"Sources: West Virginia QB JT Daniels intends to enter the NCAA transfer portal. He'll have at least one year of eligibility, and it could two years depending on whether he could get a medical redshirt for 2019. He's been the quarterback at USC and Georgia prior to WVU," Thamel said Tuesday. 

Daniels played in 10 games for West Virginia this season, opening the year as the team's starter. 

Inconsistent play, however, derailed Daniels' season as the quarterback completed just over 61% of his passes and threw 13 touchdowns compared to 9 interceptions in 2022. 

Following a mid-November win over Oklahoma where Daniels completed just 7 of 12 passes for 65 yards and a pick, the Mountaineers chose to go a different route at quarterback for the final two games of the season. 

Daniels' decision to enter the transfer portal today marks the second West Virginia quarterback to leave the program this week. Will Crowder, a redshirt freshman for West Virginia, notified the college football world of his intent to transfer on Monday. 

JT Daniels is likely to be one of the hottest names in the transfer portal for any school in need of a quarterback. Hopefully, for Daniels' sake, he can find a long-term home next season.
