If Mater Dei quarterback JT Daniels arrives for fall camp, he will have around 15 practices to win the starting job before the Sept. 1 opener against UNLV. More importantly, USC plays at Stanford on Sept. 8.
Is it realistic for Daniels to start in such a short time? I hear the Daniels camp think it is. I have my doubts. Daniels could win the starting job but I suspect it won’t be for the first game. USC plays UNLV, Stanford and Texas to open the season. Does Clay Helton want Daniels to start his career at Stanford or at Texas?
This is why Matt Fink is the frontrunner and Jack Sears will need to have a big spring to overcome Fink’s advantage.
