Mater Dei junior quarterback JT Daniels, who this week was named the Gatorade national high school player of the year, announced Friday that he will reclassify as a senior so he can enroll at USC for the 2018-19 school year.

Daniels, who committed to USC in July, made his official announcement via a video released on Twitter.

Daniels, 17, set several Orange County and CIF-Southern Section passing records since taking over as Mater Dei’s starting quarterback early in his freshman year.
