USC may be down a quarterback heading into the 2020 season.
JT Daniels, the No. 2 pro-style quarterback and No. 16 overall prospect in the class of 2018, has entered the transfer portal, the team annonced on Thursday.
Daniels started in 11 games as a freshman in 2018, completing 216 of 363 passes (59.5 percent) for 2,672 yards and 14 touchdowns to 10 interceptions. He was hurt in the first game of the 2019 season, however, tearing his ACL and meniscus in the second quarter of a 31-23 win over Fresno State. He finished the game and the season completing 25 of 34 passes for 215 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
That opened the door for backup Kedon Slovis — a three-star pro-style quarterback in the class of 2019 — to gain control of the offense. He started the remainder of USC's 12 games, completing 282 of 392 passes for 3,502 yards and 30 touchdowns to just nine interceptions.
