Class of 2019 four-star quarterback JT Daniels threw for almost 5,000 yards in his sophomore campaign at Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei.
More importantly, Daniels told Maize n Brew that he is also considering Michigan, led by coach Jim Harbaugh. As a matter of fact, he will visit Michigan for the A4: Ann Arbor Aerial Assault quarterback camp on June 17th.
“Absolutely,” Daniels told MnB, when asked if he was considering Michigan. “I’m wide open in the recruiting process. Michigan is an incredible school with a consistent great program, rocking college atmosphere, and pro-style offense. I am visiting this summer for the quarterback camp.”
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete is ranked No. 8 in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports. He is the best pro-style quarterback and is ranked No. 2 in the state of California.
He has offers to play for Stanford, Washington, Alabama, Arizona State, Brigham Young, California, Colorado, Miami (FL), Michigan, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC, Washington State, and Wisconsin.
“Nobody is really recruiting me very hard,” Daniels said. “They are not allowed to contact me yet, so I can’t really get anything from them.”
Daniels has no idea when he will commit to a college program, right now he is focused on the goals he plans to achieve at the high school level.
“As a team, the championship is of course the goal,” he said. “I’m not a big statistical guy, but I plan on completing 80 percent of my passes this season. I’m a big completion guy.”
Now, 80 percent might seem like a crazy number, but with 2018 five-star wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown on the field, Daniels could meet his goal. Brown has personal goals of 100 receptions, 2,000 receiving yards, and 30 touchdowns.
“Amon and I have a top level connection on and off the field,” Daniels mentioned. “I think we have played just enough together to where we are on the same page with everything.”
On Friday, Michigan offensive coordinator Tim Drevno stopped in at Mater Dei High School to see 2018 four-star offensive tackle Tommy Brown, St. Brown, and Daniels.
