Morgantown, West Virginia – Last offseason, JT Daniels was one of the hottest players available in the transfer portal. A former five star quarterback, Daniels drew attention from several programs looking for an experienced, proven leader that could push their team over the hump.
Ultimately, it came down to Missouri, Oregon State and West Virginia for his services. According to donors at Oregon State, Daniels had several major demands from their program if he was going to consider going there.
Daniels reportedly asked for a four bedroom rental home, a personal chef and a six-figure endorsement deal.
Daniels ended up choosing West Virginia University, where he was the starting quarterback for most of the season before being replaced by backup Garrett Greene. Daniels, who today announced his intention to enter the transfer portal again, will now attempt to play for his 4th team during his college career after playing at USC, Georgia and West Virginia.
