The crazy part about today’s JT Daniels news is Daniels still might return.
The NCAA is going to vote on May 20 on applying a one-time transfer waiver for any college athlete. The expectation is it would apply for the 2020-21 school year. But the NCAA has not officially said that will be the case but that it is working toward that goal.
So why didn’t Daniels wait until May 21 to transfer? It’s not like he can go visit a bunch of schools right now or meet coaches during a pandemic. USC hasn’t even finished spring classes yet so why the rush? Is he even 100 percent healthy?
All I know is that it won’t be surprising if this situation hovers over USC all summer. Kind of like when Daniels denied he was going to graduate early just a few days before he released a slick video announcing he would graduate early.
With the amount of hits the quarterback takes in Graham Harrell’s offense, I would say Matt Fink’s got a great chance to see the field, if we have a football season.
