Report: Ex-Husker receiver decides on transfer portal over medical retirement
A former Nebraska wide receiver has decided to pursue opportunities in the NCAA transfer portal rather than medically retire, according to a recent report from Rivals.com.
Earlier this month, a release from the Nebraska football program stated that receiver Jaevon McQuitty had decided to medically retire from football after spending three seasons with the Huskers. Now, however, it appears the ex-Husker will be looking at other options outside of Lincoln.
McQuitty missed the 2017 season with an injury and went on to appear in nine career games for the Huskers over the last two seasons. He made two catches for 14 yards, with both receptions coming in 2019.

McQuitty was a former four-star wide receiver as a recruit.
Using a redshirt year in 2017, as a freshman, McQuitty would have two years of eligibility remaining at his next destination. If he is a graduate transfer, he’d be immediate eligible for the 2020 season. If not, he’d be forced to sit for the 2020 campaign due to NCAA transfer policy, should he commit to an FBS program.
It’s unclear if there are any particular schools McQuitty is interested in at this time.
