Daniels Now Officially A Mountaineer

JT Daniels

The unofficial verbal commitment is now a binding Letter of Intent. Georgia quarterback J.T. Daniels announced his intent to transfer to West Virginia a few weeks ago. Tuesday WVU football coach Neal Brown made that commitment official, announcing that Daniels, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound, senior quarterback from Irvine, California, has signed a grant-in-aid with the Mountaineers.

    Official welcome to Mr. Daniels.  10-2 is way too optimistic in my opinion.


    Just trying to balance out some of my own negativity, as well as the overall tenor of the forum.

    Look at it this way, the State of West Virginia now has a professional football team….😉


    I guess you’re right on that


    I don’t have a clue of what the Mountaineer’s record will be in 2022.

    But, I’m glad the Mountaineers go into a season with a QB that had been through the wars.  Regardless of what some poster’s opinions are the Mountaineers didn’t need a QB from the portal, I think they did.

    From all that I’ve read about Daniels, I think that he may be the best QB available to the Mountaineers.

    Perhaps if the Mountaineers begin playing winning football they may be able to become more selective in who they bring in from the portal.  Now, IMO, they have lost more complete players than the ones they’ve brought in.
