Kyle McCord meeting with Big Ten program, per report
Kyle McCord met with Nebraska offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield on Tuesday, per a report from Cornhuskers beat writer Steve Sipple. McCord recently entered the transfer portal.
The former 4-star recruit out of Philadelphia will have two years of eligibility remaining. McCord bided his time behind C.J. Stroud for two seasons before taking over the reins of the Buckeye offense in 2023. Alongside former high school teammate Marvin Harrison Jr., McCord threw for 3,776 yards, 27 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 65.8% completion this season.
The Buckeye offense took an overall step back in ’23, averaging less than 40 points per game for the first time since 2016. Injuries certainly played a factor, but the passing attack lacked the explosiveness that it had in years past, even with Harrison on the field.
McCord only threw for less than 200 yards in one game (Rutgers) and threw a touchdown in every game except for one (Notre Dame), but in following the lineage of J.T. Barrett, Dwayne Haskins and Stroud, McCord struggled in comparison.
Nebraska had its own struggles at QB this season. Three different quarterbacks saw significant time, and they combined to throw 16 interceptions to just 10 touchdowns. The Cornhusker offense as a whole averaged 18.0 points per game, good for 124th out of 133 possible teams.
