Rivals recruiting analyst Mike Farrell made a pitch below for USC quarterback JT Daniels.
“I think he can (win the job),” Farrell said. “We’ll see how he bounces back from injury. I really don’t want to forget about JT Daniels and just say, `Oh well, he’s done.’ This kid has so much talent and throws one of the best deep balls you’ll see. I just don’t think the USC quarterback situation is anything but open.”
This almost feels like an evaluation of Daniels coming out of Mater Dei instead of his season as the starter at USC. Especially the part about the deep balls, which I don’t recall seeing much at USC.
Later, Farrell said even if Kedon Slovis wins the job, he might get hurt, which is extremely plausible and that could open a path for Daniels.
“JT Daniels is probably the best backup quarterback in college football,” Farrell said.
Here’s one part where I agree more with Farrell, where he says USC can have a good record.
“There’s so much talent on that football team, they have a chance to be really good, I’m talking like 10-2 really good,” Farrell said.
I attribute it more the Pac-12 than USC, but either way the Trojans have the potential to win despite Clay Helton.
