JT Daniels, Matt Corral and the Californication of SEC quarterback play

HOOVER, Ala. — There’s a very real scenario where the top three quarterbacks in the SEC this season all come from the Southern California area.

Georgia’s starting quarterback will be JT Daniels. He took over in the final four games of the 2020 season and seems poised for a very strong second season in Athens.

Ole Miss touts Matt Corral, who threw for 29 touchdowns last season while also rushing for 506 yards in 10 games.

Alabama will be breaking in Bryce Young at quarterback. He’s yet to start a game for the Crimson Tide but he arrived at Alabama as the No. 1 overall quarterback prospect in the 2020 recruiting cycle. Given how well Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones have played in recent seasons, many think he can keep up that same level of excellence.

Daniels comes from Irvine, Calif., while Young is from Pasadena, Calif. They both played for the famed Mater Dei High School, with their personal relationship stretching back to middle school.
