Jonathan Tyler "J.T." Daniels (born February 2, 2000, in Irvine, California) is an American football quarterback for the Georgia Bulldogs. Daniels began his career at USC in 2018 before transferring to Georgia in 2020.

Early years

Daniels attended Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, CA.[1] During his high school career, he passed for 12,014 yards with 152 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.[2]

Daniels was notable for earning the starting position his freshman year and full play calling responsibility his sophomore year, the latter of which being a distinction that took fellow Mater Dei and USC alum Matt Barkley until his senior year to earn.[3] He threw for 4,849 yards and 67 touchdowns his sophomore season. As a junior, he won the Gatorade Football Player of the Year and then later the Male Athlete of the Year award [4] after passing for 4,123 yards and scoring 61 total touchdowns (52 passing, nine rushing), leading his team to a 15–0 record and a consensus high school football national championship.[5][6] Mater Dei held the #1 position from the first week of the season and did not trail at any point in the season, winning every game by at least 10 points in CIF's Division I.[7]
