Quarterback JT Daniels was a big get for Rice football in terms of name recognition. How far can the Owls go if he lives up to the hype?
JT Daniels received his fair share of barbs when word broke last year that he would be transferring to play for Rice football in 2023. The journeyman passer has bounced around college football, seeing starting stints at USC, Georgia and West Virginia before winding up in Houston with head coach Mike Bloomgren and the Owls.
Nods have been given to Bloomgren and the program for landing a well-known name. But Daniels isn’t coming to South Main to kiss babies and smile for pictures. He wants to win and his track record suggests he’s got talent. If that is true and he plays up to that potential how far can the Owls soar?
