The University of Southern California football team has named a starting quarterback, sophomore JT Daniels.

Head coach Clay Helton named Daniels the starting quarterback after the Mater Dei alumnus lead the offense to a 5-6 overall record in his freshman season with the Trojans. In 11 games, Daniels threw for 2,672 yards, 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

The quarterback battle ramped up when the Trojans hired a new offensive coordinator, Graham Harrell. The three reminding quarterbacks on the roster: redshirt sophomore Jack Sears, redshirt junior Matt Fink and freshman Kedon Slovis.

Just two weekends away from the season opener on Saturday August 31st against Fresno State, Daniels steps back into the role that he started in last year, and Slovis is expected to be named the backup after beating out Fink and Sears in the offseason.


Daniels and the Trojans have a rough schedule this year playing No. 13 Washington on September 28th and No. 9 Notre Dame on October 12th on the road, and hosting No. 25 Stanford on September 7th, No. 14 Utah on September 20th and No. 11 Oregon on November 2nd at home.
