The senior wide receiver was one of the most versatile players on the Wildcats roster in 2020, leading the team with 667 all-purpose yards. He notched one rushing touchdown, taking snaps at both wide receiver and running back, and contributing on special teams as the NU primary kick returner.
Northwestern will play Auburn in the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1, 2021 in Orlando, Fla.
The offseason is sure to be a wild one, with roster sizes bloated due to the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA, as well as players not having to sit out a year before playing at their new school.
Reports are that since November there have been 532 active names added to the transfer portal. The numbers equate to every FBS team having to take four transfers each for all the players currently in the FBS to remain.
There are 532 active names in the transfer portal since the beginning of November.
That means every FBS team would have to take 4 transfers each just for all the players in the portal since November to remain in the FBS. Maybe not all of them want that, but that's a lot.
