  Stetson Bennett's performance Saturday at Arkansas would be considered heroic in UGA football circles after he entered in the second quarter and sparked the Bulldogs' 37-10 win. It wasn't enough of a showing for UGA coach Kirby Smart to commit to him on Monday as the starter for this Saturday's 7:30 p.m. home opener against Auburn. Southern Cal transfer JT Daniels will be cleared from a knee injury, Smart said, but the starting spot will be decided throughout practice this week. "All I can tell you is we're going to continue to work with all the guys we've got," Smart said. "And put the best guy in there that gives us the best opportunity to win football games." Georgia's depth chart listed its four quarterbacks as possible starters. In order, D'Wan Mathis was followed by Bennett, freshman Carson Beck and Daniels with 'or' being the key word following each name. Daniels appeared as the front runner to start after Wake Forrest graduate transfer Jamie Newman opted out of the season and his clearance appeared to hang in the balance until kickoff Saturday. - Athens Daily Banner

  Georgia scrimmaged Saturday four days after its leading contender for the job, Wake Forest graduate transfer Jamie Newman, changed everything by informing coach Kirby Smart on a day off from practices that he was opting out of the season, something that became public the next day. That has offered an opportunity for redshirt freshman D'Wan Mathis to push Southern Cal transfer JT Daniels for the No. 1 job, but Mathis started slow in the second preseason scrimmage at Sanford Stadium by throwing a pair of interceptions. Daniels didn't zoom way ahead of Mathis either on a day when both worked with the No. 1 unit, according to Smart. "It almost feels like you really want the guys to assume the lead, take the lead and that hasn't happened yet," Smart said. "You're liable to have a great play or a great series and come back with a boneheaded mistake or a turnover. Nobody has really just taken charge and taken over. I wish I could say that."

Newman pulled the plug on his time as a Bulldog 235 days after announcing he was headed to Georgia. Smart didn't elaborate much on the decision. "We're moving forward," Smart said. "We respect Jamie, I respect Jamie. He's done a tremendous job. I respect any kid that chooses to opt out." The UGA campus shut down in March and Newman and Georgia players didn't return for more than 90 days to begin workouts. By then, Daniels had announced he was transferring to Georgia. Daniels, the former-five-star prospect, is coming of a torn ACL sustained in the season opener last year, but Smart said he expects the 2018 Trojans starter, who received an NCAA waiver to play, to be medically given the OK to play in the Sept. 26 opener at Arkansas. "We expect him to be cleared by the first game," Smart said. "But that's not a complete certainty." - Athens Daily Banner

  Before JT Daniels hopped on a plane to Georgia, Adam Dedeaux worked with the quarterback on his throwing mechanics and footwork in Huntington Beach, Calif., as he continued to rehab from an ACL injury he sustained in Southern Cal's season opener last year. He also got a window into Daniel's mindset heading to a program where Wake Forest graduate transfer Jamie Newman arrived in January. "When we had conversations, I know he was like, As long as I'm healthy, I'm going to go compete and if I don't win the job right away, I'm just going to keep working," said Dedeaux, a quarterbacks coach. "If something happens then I'll be ready for my opportunity."

Something certainly happened Wednesday. Two and a half weeks into the Bulldogs' preseason practices, Newman opted out of playing this season due to what he called "uncertainties," of the pandemic and said he will begin preparing for the 2021 NFL draft. Offensive coordinator Todd Monken last week called it an "open competition," to replace Jake Fromm as starter and Daniels, who the NCAA granted a waiver in mid-July to play this season, felt he was in the fight for the job. "He was not far behind," said Dedeaux, who like Daniels graduated from Mater Dei High and whose clients include Matt Ryan, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott and Matthew Stafford. "If you had said Newman didn't opt out and JT won the job, that wouldn't have surprised me frankly." - Athens Daily Banner

  UGA could have intrigue for the starting quarterback job in 2020 if the college football season is played. Southern Cal quarterback transfer JT Daniels revealed Monday he has gained immediate eligibility to play without having to sit out a season. "Thank you to the NCAA for granting me immediate eligibility and allowing me to play football this fall," Daniels tweeted. "I will not comment on the waiver or transfer, but look forward to a great 2020 season with my teammates."

Daniels gives Georgia coach Kirby Smart and offensive coordinator Todd Monken two players who have started for power five conference programs at quarterback to choose from. Wake Forest graduate transfer quarterback Jamie Newman still probably will be considered the favorite. He joined the program in January and took part in offseason workouts for a couple of months. Daniels didn't arrive in Athens until June. Newman is viewed as a possible early round NFL draft pick next year and offers dual-threat capabilities, but Daniels will at the least provide a proven backup and quality depth. - Athens Daily Banner

  Georgia's quarterback competition got a lot more interesting on May 29, when former five-star recruit and Southern Cal quarterback J.T. Daniels announced his intention to transfer to the Bulldogs. Daniels started 11 games for the Trojans as a true freshman in 2018, passing for 2,672 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He missed most of 2019 after suffering a knee injury in the season opener.

An immediate eligibility waiver is still needed for Daniels to be able to see the field in 2020. The depth chart listed above assumes no waiver for Daniels. If he receives one, he will vie for the starting job with Wake Forest transfer Jamie Newman, who had been assumed to be the starter heading toward the fall. An approved waiver means three remaining years of eligibility, while a denial means two. Daniels' decision to transfer will affect the Georgia quarterback room not just this season, but for years to come. - Macon Telegraph

  Georgia has picked up another high-profile transfer to compete for its starting quarterback job, landing former Southern California starter JT Daniels. Daniels started for the Trojans in 2018, but lost his job to Kedon Slovis after going down last season with a knee injury. He announced Thursday that he’s heading to Georgia, which is seeking a replacement for three-year starter Jake Fromm.

Daniels, who entered the transfer portal in April, will battle for playing time with graduate transfer Jamie Newman, who left Wake Forest to play his final college season with a program that has been a consistent national contender under coach Kirby Smart. Daniels was among the top quarterback recruits in the nation when he left Orange County’s Mater Dei High School early to join the Trojans two years ago. He started for USC as a freshman, passing for 2,672 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions during an inconsistent season for him and the Trojans. Coach Clay Helton dismissed several offensive assistants after a 5-7 finish - the school’s first losing season since 2000. - AP College Football

  When JT Daniels entered the NCAA transfer portal last month, the former five-star quarterback left the door open for a return to USC if immediate eligibility weren't possible elsewhere. But even after the NCAA tabled a possible one-time transfer exception last week, Daniels still made his exit from USC official. Daniels announced Thursday he will transfer from USC to Georgia after two seasons with the Trojans. With no transfer exception available, the former Gatorade National High School Player of the Year must presumably apply for a traditional transfer waiver if he has any hope of playing for the Bulldogs next season.

His transfer marks the end of an up-and-down tenure at USC, where he enrolled in the spring of 2018 after skipping his final season at Santa Ana Mater Dei High. Even before his arrival, the five-star local recruit was lauded as a savior for a struggling football program. But after winning the starting job as a freshman, Daniels piloted an inconsistent USC offense to a 5-7 record. He threw for 2,672 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. Daniels won the job again as a sophomore, beating out impressive incoming freshman Kedon Slovis. Under new offensive coordinator Graham Harrell, Daniels appeared primed for a breakout season until just before halftime of the Trojans' season opener, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. The injury ended his season, and eventually his tenure in Los Angeles. - Orange County Register

  JT Daniels hasn't thrown a pass for USC since tearing his ACL in the 2019 opener, clearing the way for Slovis. And the former Mater Dei High star might never throw another pass for the Trojans. The 2018 starter entered the transfer portal last month to explore his options with other schools. But Daniels and head coach Clay Helton have kept the door open for the possibility of the the redshirt sophomore staying at USC if he doesn't like any of the other possibilities. The fact that Daniels could have to sit out a season after the NCAA postponed the one-time transfer waiver could play a big role in his decision. - Orange County Register

  Once hailed as USC's next great quarterback, JT Daniels is now in search of a new home. The former Santa Ana Mater Dei High signal caller, who started for USC as a freshman in 2018, will enter the NCAA transfer portal, the school announced Thursday. The decision, according to a person close to the situation, was made in anticipation of a potential NCAA decision on a one-time transfer exception, which, if passed, would offer Daniels immediate eligibility for the 2020 season. If Daniels were still required to sit out next season, USC is optimistic that he could return. In a statement, the quarterback left that possibility on the table. "I love this university, coaching staff, and team," Daniels said. "To me it is in my best interest to explore all my options going into the 2020 season. I will remain in contact with the coaching staff through the process. USC remains one of my options, and that door has remained open for me."

Daniels had been the centerpiece of USC's future plans on offense. He ran away with the starting job as a freshman and won it again as a sophomore, as USC transitioned to a pass-heavy, air raid offense. But plans for a standout sophomore campaign were derailed after just two quarters in the season opener against Fresno State. Daniels tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, ending his season and paving the way for freshman Kedon Slovis. Slovis proceeded to shatter USC records, on his way to arguably the finest freshman season for a quarterback in school history. - Los Angeles Times

  Southern California quarterback J.T. Daniels will miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament and the meniscus in his right knee during the Trojans' opener. Coach Clay Helton confirmed the severity of his sophomore starter's injury Sunday night. USC (1-0) plans to start freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis against Stanford (1-0) at the Coliseum on Saturday. Daniels will redshirt this season, Helton said. With an estimated nine to 12 months of recovery from surgery, Daniels could be ready for camp next year. "He will be missed, but we will have to move forward, and we wish him nothing but the best," Helton said. "We know he's going to be back."

Daniels was hurt when his leg twisted while he was being tackled on a blitz with 27 seconds left in the first half of USC's 31-23 victory over Fresno State. Daniels started 11 games last season for USC's first losing team since 2000, and he won a four-way competition for the starting job last month in camp. Daniels had an inconsistent freshman year after arriving at USC as the nation's top quarterback recruit, but Helton and new offensive coordinator Graham Harrell believed Daniels would thrive in Harrell's version of the Air Raid offense. Daniels looked mostly sharp before his injury against the Bulldogs, going 25 of 34 for 215 yards and a touchdown, but also throwing a goal-line interception. "There were really some glimpses of what this offense can be, and it really excited me and our staff," Helton said. - AP College Football

  Sophomore quarterback J.T. Daniels will start at Southern California for the second straight season. Coach Clay Helton announced Tuesday that Daniels, who started 11 games as a freshman for the Trojans, won a four-man competition for the job over freshman Kedon Slovis, redshirt junior Matt Fink and redshirt sophomore Jack Sears. With Helton hiring a new offensive coordinator in Graham Harrell to run the "Air Raid" spread offense, the embattled head coach decided to give all four quarterbacks a chance to compete. Daniels came out on top for the second straight training camp.

"We've had 30 practices, both 15 in spring and 15 in camp, and we feel confident where we are right now. We felt like we needed to move forward and allow more reps for the guys that are going to be in the one and two position, so we're going to name J.T. as the starting quarterback," Helton said Tuesday. Daniels completed 59.5 percent of his passes for 2,672 yards, 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions during an erratic first season as USC finished 5-7, its first losing season since 2000. - AP College Football
