This didn’t hold up well, did it?
“JT is definitely staying,” Daniels’ father, Steve Daniels, told 247Sports.com. “He’s happy for Clay (Helton) and has a great relationship with him but to be honest, no matter what happened with the coaching situation, JT was going to stay and compete. He loves it at SC, he has an SC tattoo on his leg so he’s pretty committed to the program.
“He’s a very competitive kid and has never run from a challenge before. Kedon (Slovis) played really well and JT was happy for him but at the same time, JT is a competitor and once he’s back to 100 percent, he wants to compete for that job.”
So what happens to the USC tattoo? I guess he can hold onto it until the NCAA formally approves the one-time transfer rule in May.
