Why the St. Brown and Daniels Connection is Likely to Cause a Stir.
The moment Trojans open their season playing against UNLV in the first of September there is one major connection people will be waiting to see. The anticipated connection involved JT Daniels and Amon-Ra St. Brown who play quarterback and wide receiver respectively.They were high school teammates, now in their freshman year. It is yet unknown on the role St. Brown will assume in the offense and the starting quarterback hasn’t been picked by the coaches.Despite this, this is one connection people should be in the watch out for in the next 4 years. On top of how these players will be in the field, their individual stories are also interesting. They can be said to be high caliber athletes but they have intriguing lives off the field as well. Amon-Ra St. Brown came into the high school through JT Daniels. Even though it was a high school team, it does not mean the players did not have to do a lot of work in managing to remain at the highest caliber over the years. These two met at a 7-on-7 camp during the offseason which sees the best athletes get one of the high-level coachings to put them on edge and make their recruitment profiles look better.
They did well on the field and won the first position in high school football nationwide and also the California state football championship. JT Daniels reclassified and graduated high school a year earlier. This might be because he wanted to play college football with St. Brown who was ahead of him academically by a year. Given that they helped each other get to a 5-Star recruit level it is no wonder they would like to continue working together. Apart from how well they know the game, they respect each other when they are playing too.
