It's safe to say Jayden Daniels' teammates were not happy when he entered the NCAA Transfer portal this week.
The Arizona State quarterback entered the NCAA transfer portal on Thursday and his teammates wasted no time cleaning out his locker on his behalf, seeming more than a bit disgruntled.

"Clean (his) shit out," one teammate could be heard saying in a video. "(He) sucked anyway."
Towards the end of the season, it was speculated that Daniels would be leaving the program, either by way of the transfer portal or declaring for the NFL. The rumors even promoted the quarterback to post a video on Twitter announcing his return to Arizona State back in December.
In response, head coach Herm Edwards said He was never leaving, so I don’t know why any of this became a story."
Turns out, he is indeed leaving.
Daniels was a three-year starter at Arizona State. He began his Sun Devil career with a prolific freshman season in which he completed more than 60 percent of his passes for 2,943 yards and 17 touchdowns with just two interceptions while rushing for 355 yards and two touchdowns.
His numbers this season appeared to regress. He still threw for 2,381 yards and had a career-best 65.4 percent completion percentage in 2021 but he also threw 10 interceptions and just 10 touchdowns. However, he was one of the more dangerous running quarterbacks in the country, rushing for 710 yards and six touchdowns this season.
