Georgia lost their star quarterback Jamie Newman after he decided to opt out of his senior season. While many are sitting there thinking that the Bulldogs will now be a push over, let me tell you something, you better wake up. Former USC Trojans QB JT Daniels is there and to be honest, I think they are in better hands with Daniels than they were with Newman.
Daniels is still recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered roughly a year ago at USC. He will be ready to play when the Bulldogs take on the Razorbacks on September 26th and let me tell you something I think Georgia is lucky.
Is JT Daniels the next Joe Burrow?
Georgia was going to ride out with Newman after he transferred to UGA, but he really had not had the ability to get used to his teammates. He arrived in town in January, and with COVID-19 crushing spring football and having to get used to a new playbook from Todd Monken the first year offensive coordinator and former NFL coach, Newman opted out.
He will begin training for the NFL, and while that is great for him, I think not having this year under his belt will hurt him a bit.
Daniels, however won the starting job at USC as an 18-year-old freshman and performed at a serviceable capacity. Last year, Daniels was hoping to strike gold but he ended up getting hurt. He will now have a chance to prove his worth. I think Daniels is going to ball out in Georgia. He has been working with Jordan Palmer in California and Palmer loves him.
If Jordan Palmer loves you, I love. Plain and simple, he is the quartback guru. Georgia don’t panic, you are in good hands.
