Nebraska QB Luke McCaffrey enters transfer portal

A second McCaffrey has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

Luke McCaffrey, a redshirt freshman quarterback at Nebraska, entered his name in the portal on Tuesday. He joins his older brother, Dylan, who opted out of the 2020 season at Michigan and entered the transfer portal last week. Dylan McCaffrey also plays quarterback.

Luke McCaffrey is expected to attend classes at Nebraska this semester.

During the 2020 season, Luke McCaffrey played in seven of Nebraska’s eight games, starting two. He connected on 48 of his 76 passes for 466 yards and one touchdown but threw six interceptions. He ran for 364 yards and three scores.

Luke McCaffrey is the youngest of former NFL wide receiver Ed McCaffrey’s four sons. His older brother, Christian, is an All-Pro running back with the Carolina Panthers.

McCaffrey’s departure could force Nebraska coach Scott Frost to turn to the transfer portal to find an experienced quarterback to compete with Adrian Martinez, who started the other six games in 2020.
