Where could Daniels end up as a transfer? Here are 15 teams (in alphabetical order):

15 possible transfer targets for Jayden Daniels

State of Arizona
Could Daniels decide to return to Arizona State after reviewing his options on the portal?

The Golden Bears have already added one transfer (Jack Plummer) this offseason, but Daniels would be an upgrade over the quarterbacks fighting for the starting job. Also, Daniels is a California native so this would be a return close to home.

Myles Brennan is expected to start under new trainer Brian Kelly, but little stands behind him in the way of proven depth.

The Tigers have three options – Brady Cook, Tyler Macon and Sam Horn – who will be fighting for the starting spot this year. However, all of these quarterbacks lack experience. Daniels would be an instant upgrade in terms of production and experience.

Could the Nittany Lions seek a transfer to push Sean Clifford forward and close the gap on newcomers Drew Allar and Christian Veilleux?

Dorian Thompson-Robinson is back, but Daniels’ hometown of San Bernardino is not far from Los Angeles.

West Virginia
Daniels may not be the best fit under new coordinator Graham Harrell, but the Mountaineers have little quarterback depth and experience going into 2022.

The Badgers were in the mix for Caleb Williams. Could coach Paul pursue Chryst Daniels for Graham Mertz contest?

State of Florida
Jordan Travis is set as a 2022 starter. Could the Seminoles pursue Daniels to add depth and competition to the roster?

State of Iowa
Could the Cyclones pursue a proven QB to push Hunter Dekkers?

New Mexico
Former Arizona State assistant Danny Gonzales was hired as New Mexico’s head coach ahead of the 2020 season. Although a Power 5 program seems like the most likely landing spot for Daniels, in terms of familiarity, that would be a good fit.

The Sooners have a starter in Dillon Gabriel but the depth behind the UCF transfer is shallow.

State of San Diego
The Aztecs added a transfer (Braxton Burmeister) earlier this off-season but if Daniels is interested he would be an upgrade over the options on the squad.

Garrett Shrader is returning as a starter, but the Orange could use depth and competition to improve a passing game that finished bottom in the ACC (154.0 yards per game).

Virginia Tech
The Hokies have already added two transfers this offseason in Grant Wells and Jason Brown.
