Sophomore quarterback JT Daniels has been named USC's starter, coach Clay Helton announced on Tuesday.
Daniels beat out Jack Sears, Matt Fink and true freshman Kedon Slovis for the starting position after weeks of close competition. All four quarterbacks led lengthy possessions during the team's scrimmage on Saturday and mounted touchdown drives.
"I’ve never had four quarterbacks that could start on a lot of football teams across the country," Helton said Saturday, per the Los Angeles Times. "It really has progressed everybody."
