Former Nebraska Huskers standout wide receiver JD Spielman has reportedly made his transfer decision.

Spielman was among Nebraska's best players during his time in Lincoln. Earlier this offseason, though, Spielman left the program. He later entered the NCAA transfer portal intending to move on to a different program.

Now, the former Huskers star appears to have found a new program.

247Sports is reporting that Spielman will transfer to TCU. The Horned Frogs have been among the favorites for Spielman since he entered the transfer portal.

Spielman will reportedly be immediately eligible to play in 2020.

"Former Nebraska receiver JD Spielman is transferring to TCU, multiple sources confirmed to HornedFrogBlitz late Saturday night. TCU has been the rumored favorite destination for several weeks.

The big question on every Frog fan's mind is whether or not Spielman will see the field immediately this season. In order to play, Spielman was applying for a waiver to play immediately. There's good news on that front as well as sources also told HFB that Spielman's waiver request to play immediately in 2020 has been granted," 247Sports' Jeremy Clark reports.

This is a big get for TCU.

Spielman, a 5-foot-9 wide receiver, caught 49 passes for 898 yards and five touchdowns during the 2019 season.

TCU is scheduled to open the 2020 season on Sept. 12 against Prairie View.
