I keep hearing Washington is high on JT Daniels’ list of schools.
So I looked at the Huskies’ quarterbacks: redshirt sophomore Jacob Sirmon, redshirt freshman Dylan Morris and incoming freshman Ethan Garbers.
I can’t say Daniels is worse than any of them. But he would have to compete. And that’s where I see a problem.
He needs to go somewhere where he doesn’t compete.
Just so people understand, Matt Leinart did not like to compete either. Pete Carroll said that. Not me.
Carroll also said Leinart improved dramatically once he was named the starter at the end of spring practice of 2003.
That spring was no slam dunk for Leinart. Some were surprised when he was named the starter and he didn’t even dominate the spring game the day after the announcement. But Carroll took a chance. He admitted it. And it paid off.
So Daniels better find a roster with quarterbacks or a coach willing to make a secret deal. Or “another coach,” I should say.
