USC wide receiver Michael Pittman was asked today how USC freshman quarterback JT Daniels fighting for the starting job compares to the Sam Darnold-Max Browne QB derby two years ago.
“I wouldn’t say it’s similar because we would see Sam’s talent and all of us would be like, `woah, like this guy’s the real deal.’
“We have to see JT in camp first because they had already seen Sam for like a year and then I came in and then I would see the things Sam did and I would be like, `that’s not normal for a normal QB.’
“I really just have to wait to see because I don’t want to jump the gun. But he has real talent. Straight up talent.”
