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-pounder recorded two career catches - both during the 2019 season - for the Huskers. McQuitty's retirement was announced at the same time of 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 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 transfer to the FCS level and not lose a year, as well. There are several schools near his home in Columbia, Missouri - Missouri State, Southeast Missouri State - that would fit that bill.
