Northwestern QB Peyton Ramsey appears to make announcement via social media
Peyton Ramsey could’ve stuck around Northwestern for one more season if he wanted to take advantage of the NCAA’s blanket waiver for all fall student-athletes from the 2020 season. But it doesn’t appear that will be the case.
On his Instagram account, Ramsey posted a phot from the Citrus Bowl with the comment, “A Storybook Ending.”
