Michigan QB Dylan McCaffrey to opt-out, seek transfer

According to reports, Michigan QB Dylan McCaffrey is opting out of the 2020 season and will seek to transfer to another program for the 2021 season.


From Detroit News:

Michigan quarterback Dylan McCaffrey is opting out of the upcoming season and is looking to transfer, a source close to the situation confirmed to The Detroit News on Wednesday.

This news comes on the heels of the Big Ten announcing it will start a nine-game season Oct. 23-24.

McCaffrey, who was competing for the starting job with Joe Milton and Cade McNamara, will graduate from Michigan in December and have two years of eligibility remaining.

He is not the only Michigan player who has opted out. Receiver Nico Collins, who returned to play his final season rather than head to the NFL Draft after the bowl game earlier this year, reportedly has signed with an agent. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reported Wednesday that Collins signed with agent Drew Rosenhaus.

We passed along a report earlier that McCaffrey was weighing his options and apparently, he has made his decision.
