What was going on in Athens, Ga.? WCBI’s Jon Sokoloff reported that Kiffin was meeting with JT Daniels and Jermaine Burton, who are leaving Georgia as transfers. Sokoloff adds that Daniels and Burton see themselves as a package deal.
Ole Miss is losing starting quarterback Matt Corral to the NFL Draft. Kiffin has been in the mix for numerous possible transfers, such as Dillon Gabriel (who committed to Oklahoma) and Jaxson Dart. We can apparently add Daniels to the list.
Daniels is a former 5-star recruit and has played for USC and Georgia. He has passed for 4,840 yards, 32 touchdowns and 16 interceptions over four seasons. Burton had 26 catches for 497 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore last season.
