Junior quarterback JT Daniels is one of 25 quarterbacks in the country who have advanced past the initial stage of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List process.

The Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation narrowed its preseason Watch List to just 25 quarterbacks Friday afternoon.

Daniels, who has thrown for 956 yards and seven touchdowns this season, is part of that group. The Mountaineer QB is also one of just three Big 12 quarterbacks in line for the award.
