Nebraska Football: Kyle McCord ‘moving forward’ from Huskers



Syndication: USA TODAY

Nebraska football quarterback target Kyle McCord will be reportedly moving on from the Huskers. This was first reported by On3’s Pete Nakos.

McCord was one of the main quarterback targets for Nebraska. There had been many reports connecting him to the Huskers over the past couple weeks.

However, things changed at the beginning of the week, as was reported at Dylan Raiola had renewed interest in Nebraska. He will be taking a visit to the program from December 15-17th.

This is certainly quite the changeup from the past couple weeks. McCord would have been a starter for Nebraska, and he would have brought Big Ten experience along with him. The quarterback threw four 3,776 yards, 27 touchdowns, and eight interceptions in three seasons at Ohio State.

He is coming off a 2023 campaign that saw him tally 3,170 yards, 24 touchdowns, and six interceptions.

McCord is more of a pro-style quarterback. This would have fit with what the Nebraska football offensive scheme wants to be. His accuracy on both intermediate and deep throws would have given the Huskers the explosiveness they needed under center.

McCord also had a strong relationship with wide receiver Julian Fleming. Fleming was visiting Nebraska earlier this week. One has to wonder how the dynamic of that changes as well, and if Fleming will still be a Nebraska target.

What does this mean for Nebraska Football?

This now leaves the Nebraska football quarterback room in a bit of a tricky situation. There was already some attrition at the position earlier this week, as it was announced that Jeff Sims officially entered the transfer portal earlier this week.

One has to wonder what the next step is for the program as it relates to the quarterback position. As of right now, locking down Raiola may be the most important task for the program. Failure to do so on that end would put Nebraska football in an even more difficult position.

Things move quickly in recruiting, and this is an example of it. It will be intriguing to see where McCord ends up.
