Jaevon McQuitty, who was no longer going to play football at Nebraska because of what the school termed a medical retirement, is now in the transfer portal.
The 6-foot, 200-pound wide receiver recorded two career catches for the Huskers — both during the 2019 season. McQuitty’s retirement was announced earlier this month, at the same time as kicker Barret Pickering’s medical retirement and receiver JD Spielman’s personal break from the team.
If McQuitty graduates from the university in the next few months, he’d be a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining at an FBS school.
If he doesn’t, he’d need the NCAA to change its current waiver rules, or approve a special waiver, to have two seasons at the FBS level. He could also transfer to the FCS level and not lose a year.
There are two FCS programs in his home state of Missouri — Missouri State and Southeast Missouri State.
