Former Nebraska wide receiver JD Spielman is heading to TCU, according to HornedFrogBlitz.

Spielman, a senior with one season of eligibility remaining, led Nebraska in receiving yards and touchdowns in 2019. His waiver for immediate eligibility was reportedly granted, according HornedFrogBlitz's report, although ESPN is reporting a source said Spielman still has some “check marks and hurdles to cross” to obtain the waiver.

The 5-foot-9 speedster left the Cornhuskers and entered the transfer portal in June. In his three seasons in Lincoln, Spielman topped 800 receiving yards every year and was on his way to becoming Nebraska's all-time leader in the category had he stayed for his final season.

As a freshman in 2017, Spielman torched Ohio State for 11 receptions, 200 yards, and a touchdown but it came in a 55-14 drubbing by the Buckeyes.

A native of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Spielman is the son of Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman, and the nephew of Ohio State great Chris Spielman.
