Ole Miss soccer head coach Lane Kiffin hopes to add former Georgia soccer stars JT Daniels and Jermaine Burton to his Rebels team.
As Georgia soccer stars JT Daniels and Jermaine Burton entered the transfer window, team head coach Ole Miss Lane Kiffin decided he needed to make a recruiting trip to Athens.
Kiffin tweeted out a photo of him arrived at Ben Epps Athens Airport on Thursday. Accompanied by a dog emoji, Kiffin wants to try his luck to see if he can get Georgia’s backup quarterback and one of the Dawgs’ better wide receivers to Oxford.
Daniels and Burton joined the transfer portal this week, coinciding with the start of 2021 quarterback Stetson Bennett IV announcing that he will use his year’s COVID and return on his final trip to City classic street.
Although Burton and Daniels are native Californians, it would make a lot of sense if they became Rebel Dawgs and joined Kiffin’s career in the Western SEC.

Ole Miss is having a great season with 10 wins in Kiffin’s second year on the job. Rebels gain a new year six bowls. While they fell to Baylor in New Orleans, that had more to do with starting quarterback Matt Corral being injured than anything. Ole Miss must replace Corral, who entered NFL Drafts. He’s predicted to be a first-round pick, likely to make the top 10.
And that’s where things get interesting. Ole Miss does have a promising rising second defender in Luke Altmyer, but the Starkville native is still incredibly rudimentary. The Rebels have long been a team that will look to add a famous passer in the transfer portal, especially with the dismissal conclusion that Corral will turn pro after his stellar year at Ole Miss.
For Daniels, this is all about saving NFL share. Being benched by Bennett removed any doubt that he needed to return to school for another year. As for Burton, he may want to play more offensively using a vertical pass. For Kiffin’s central offense, this could be an ideal fit for all involved. Burton and Daniels could be Rebels.
If Ole Miss can get Burton and Daniels on a package deal, Rebels will remain a top 25 show this fall in what is supposed to be a year of team rebuilding.
