Trojans Quarterback to Transfer
Alabama is set to play USC in just under five months in Arlington, Texas. The Trojans will likely be without one of its two talented quarterbacks. JT Daniels has entered the transfer portal according to AL.com's Matt Zenitz.
Daniels started for the Trojans to begin the 2019 season but suffered a season-ending ACL injury. Freshman quarterback Kendon Slovis replaced Daniels after his injury and threw for 3,500 yards with 30 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Slovis led USC to a 7-4 record as a starting quarterback last season.
Slovis will likely be the quarterback lining up against the Crimson Tide defense but the Trojans will now be without an experienced backup quarterback should things go poorly for Slovis.
Daniels will enter the transfer portal and have two years of eligibility remaining after taking a redshirt year in 2020. Daniels won the Gatorade Player of The Year as a junior in high school and then reclassified into the 2018 recruiting class. He was the second true freshman in Trojan history to start at quarterback in the fall of 2018.
