It appears as if JT Daniels time at Georgia is coming to an end. The fourth-year junior quarterback has entered the NCAA's Student-Athlete Transfer Portal where he can be recruited by other programs.
Daniels has two more years of eligibility left. He will be a fifth-year senior in 2022 and a super senior in 2023 due to the NCAA's decision to not count the 2020 season against the eligibility of any player in any sport. Daniels has opened the door to leaving UGA after going 7-0 as the Bulldogs' starting cornerback.
The former five-star prospect made is way to Athens in the summer of 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. He wasn't cleared for action when he enrolled after suffering a torn ACL and extensive structural damage in his knee at USC in 2019. That injury required more than one surgery.
He went through preseason camp with the Bulldogs but still wasn't medically cleared for the season opener at Arkansas. Kirby Smart announced that he was cleared the following Monday prior to UGA taking on Auburn but Daniels still didn't play. D'Wan Mathis started against the Razorbacks, giving way to Stetson Bennett IV after some serious struggles.
Bennett went on to start games against Auburn, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, and Florida before suffering a separated shoulder in the loss to the Gators.
