You’re probably reading this and thinking, “Sean Clifford is coming back and Drew Allar is coming in.” As far fetched as it seems, why not explore the possibility of it actually happening. Former USC and Georgia quarterback JT Daniels entered the transfer portal following Georgia’s run to its first national championship since 1980, and he remains out there on the transfer market. Could Penn State legitimately be a potential transfer option for Daniels?
I mean, the Wisconsin Badgers have emerged as a serious contender for former Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams. The Badgers! This is a team that has no history of producing NFL-caliber quarterbacks (This does not include Russell Wilson, who was not initially recruited by the Badgers).
After Jaxson Dart entered the transfer portal, Williams received multiple crystal ball predictions to USC. The Trojans seem like the obvious choice for Williams, right? But, what if he shocked the world and went to play for Paul Chryst and the Badgers?
What if JT Daniels also joined him in the Big Ten and played for James Franklin and the Nittany Lions?
Yes, it would be huge for Penn State and it seems unlikely that it would happen. But, it seems pretty obvious that Daniels would start fairly easily over Clifford. Plus, why not have Allar sit and learn behind a quarterback that has been a part of a winning program and has the talent to play at the NFL level?
Penn State is a quarterback away from being a very competitive team in the Big Ten. Hence the reason why several fans are excited for Allar.
Franklin has consistently recruited high-level players, and this 2022 class coming in now has three five star recruits, including Allar, Nicholas Singleton and Dani Dennis-Sutton.
Clifford did announce his return to Penn State, but was also benched a few times this season for freshman…
