Competition In UGA’s QB Room Just Heated Up

Georgia Bulldogs beat writer for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Chip Towers joined Randy McMichael and Chris Goforth to talk about the breaking news that University of Southern California (USC) transfer quarterback J.T. Daniels has been granted eligibility to play in the 2020 college football season for the Bulldogs.

“This is what I like about the quarterback position. You know Kirby (Smart) doesn’t fool around. If there’s not competition there he is going to get it from somewhere. First and foremost Kirby Smart believes in competition within the team at the position and suddenly you got a pretty crowded room there and none of these guys are chump change really,” said Towers when asked about J.T. Daniels being granted eligibility this season.

“Obviously I think Newman (Jamie Newman) is the guy, he was recruited to do that. J.T. Daniels is a wild card. How Kirby pulled that off I don’t know. He is definitely there as an insurance policy and/or to put heat on Jamie Newman,” Towers continued.
