USC landed one of the top quarterback recruits in the country this year in five-star player J.T. Daniels Daniels is a 6-foot-2, 205-pound player from Santa Ana, California who had offers from 18 different schools.

If there was any doubt that Daniels was happy he chose USC, that's been all but erased. Daniels apparently got a massive Trojans tattoo on his leg. He appears to be all-in on his school heading into his freshman season with the team.

The tattoo takes up basically the entire lower half of his leg. The main attraction is the Tommy Trojan portion.

The photo was posted on Instagram by Shotgun Spratling. He says it's "fresh ink" - meaning it's a brand new tattoo.

Daniels, as a recruit, had offers from a number of other big-time schools, including Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, LSU and Miami. 247 Sports had him ranked as the sixth-best player in the country for the 2018 class.

With Sam Darnold moving on to the NFL, Daniels actually has a shot at becoming the team's starting quarterback his freshman year. The season starts in less than a month.

A year ago, the Trojans finished with an 11-3 record and a Pac-12 title. They open up against UNLV on September 1 this year.
