Depth Chart Preview

Daniels enters the 2021 season with a chance to be the Tigers’ starting quarterback. To do that, he’ll have to beat fifth-year senior Myles Brennan, redshirt rookie Garrett Nussmeier and true rookie Walker Howard.

“Jayden is an exceptional player who will make our quarterback room even stronger,” Kelly said. “He’s a point guard with a strong arm and the ability to make plays with his feet. We’re excited to welcome Jayden to our program as we continue to build a roster of student-athletes who will compete for field championships and work just as hard in the classroom to graduate.
