Mater Dei’s JT Daniels, the nation’s top 2019 quarterback, committed to USC Football on Sunday night, prompting a wave of ecstatic reaction on social media.
USC Football caught a big fish on Sunday, reeling in the commitment of elite 2019 quarterback JT Daniels.
Quarterbacks like Daniels only come around so often — he is the No. 1 QB and the No. 4 player in class — so naturally, USC Twitter had a party.
There’s good reason for that. With a strong arm, natural leadership and great football instincts, Daniels represents USC’s future at the quarterback position.
At Mater Dei, Daniels earned the starting job as a freshman and in two years as a starter he has excelled in every way. Last year, he tossed 67 touchdowns, with 4,849 yards and just six interceptions. All told, he has already hit the 100 touchdown mark in his career, and he still has two years of high school to add to those numbers.
Here’s how Daniels announced his commitment — short, sweet and to the point:
Daniels himself provided the Twitter highlight of the night with a comeback against a user who called the quarterback a “loser” for picking the Trojans, simply informing him of the proper grammar for his insult.
And it didn’t end there as the user continued to argue that Daniels made the wrong decision with his commitment.
That’s when St. John Bosco defensive tackle Suaava Poti entered the fray with yet another grammatical correction.
Mater Dei receiver, and USC target for 2018, Amon-Ra St. Brown was one of the first to congratulate his QB.
Even former USC commit Matt Corral was quick to send a message to the new Trojan.
Current USC players also jumped forward to offer congratulations to Daniels and welcome him to the Trojan family.
The rest of Twitter also had a lot to say about USC’s newest commit, citing his top-drawer potential for the Trojans.
Daniels is the second commit for USC’s 2019 recruiting class, joining linebacker De’Gabriel Floyd.
