Former Georgia quarterback JT Daniels has decided where he'll resume his college football career. On Wednesday, he revealed that he's heading to West Virginia.

Daniels called West Virginia head coach Neal Brown to inform him of his decision.

West Virginia was always considered one of the top suitors for Daniels. Now, the former five-star quarterback will have a chance to show what he can do in a larger role.

As for why Daniels chose West Virginia, he said he really likes the program's overall roster.

"Going up and down the roster, I feel like they have very, very good pieces everywhere," Daniels told ESPN. "It feels like a great fit for quarterback. I feel like there's a really, really, really good team that I'm going to step into and do my part to contribute."

In five games at Georgia last season, Daniels completed 68-of-94 passes for 722 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions.

The big question mark for Daniels is whether or not he can stay healthy. Unfortunately, he dealt with injuries at Georgia and USC.

Only time will tell if Daniels can reach his full potential in Morgantown.
