JT Daniels Has Something to Prove!

WVU might have gone into the 2022 campaign with a quarterback competition, but when JT Daniels emerged on the transfer portal, coaches couldn’t overlook the chance to add a quality experienced 5-star QB to the equation.

The veteran Georgia QB possesses all of the necessary components to become one of the most impactful quarterbacks in the nation. He will spend the next 2 years at West Virginia trying to establish himself as an elite NFL prospect so that he can continue his career after college. Instead of focusing on a young quarterback who might or might not be fully prepared to assume the responsibilities of guiding the offense, the Mountaineers will be capable of winning this fall thanks to his expertise.

While he has exceeded expectations, Daniels has also gone above and beyond in order aid the team’s younger quarterbacks, a gesture that will enrich WVU for the foreseeable future should one of those young men succeeds in taking over Daniels’ legacy when he goes on to the professional ranks.

Over the past several years, West Virginia has not been a program that has developed or molded young quarterbacks due to taking junior and senior-oriented transfers. The coaching staff has added transfer quarterbacks such as Will Grier and Jarret Doege. Although Grier made an impact during his two year tenure, the same cannot be said for Jarret Doege. Taking these transfers is okay when the timing is right, however, WVU needs to start developing quarterbacks for the future. In order for Neal Brown to have a successful season he needs leadership on the field and I think JT Daniels can give him that leadership that can put the Mountaineers over the top only if Daniels can stay healthy.

This is a crucial year for Neal Brown and company as we head into year 4 under his direction. WVU can ill afford to go 1-2 in non conference games as this will set the tone for a very brutal Big 12 conference schedule.

Cheers, Beers, and Mountaineers!
