Morgantown, West Virginia – When JT Daniels committed to play for the Mountaineers earlier today, it likely opened the floodgates for other potential players to transfer and follow him to West Virginia.
One such player is Amarius Mims, an enormous 6’7 330 pound offensive tackle out of Cochran, Georgia. Mims, a former five star player and the #8 overall player in the 2020 class, recently entered the transfer portal.
As a true freshman last season, Mims played in eight games with the national champions Georgia Bulldogs at guard, but he ultimately wanted to play at the tackle position.
Today, when Daniels announced that he was committing to play for West Virginia, Mims immediately shared it on his Instagram story. Although Sims will be pursued by every major football program in the country, West Virginia is now considered a major player in the Mims’ sweepstakes with the addition of Daniels.
In addition, another Georgia offensive lineman, Clay Webb, a five star guard out of Oxford, Alabama, recently entered the transfer portal and West Virginia is now an option following Daniels’ commitment.
JT Daniels has been a very popular player at both USC and at Georgia, and don’t be surprised if several other high-caliber recruits follow him to Morgantown in the very near future.
