Nebraska WR Jaevon McQuitty declares Jesus as Lord of his life

It’s no surprise Nebraska Cornhuskers wide receiver Jaevon McQuitty has his sights on the NFL after entering college as his state’s No. 1 prospect and a target of other big programs like Missouri and Michigan.

As of this week, however, McQuitty also has his sights set on an even bigger influence on his life.

As the 19-year-old wideout shared on Twitter, McQuitty was recently baptized, saying he “decided to take a step in my relationship with our Lord and Savior.”

“I declare that Jesus is the Lord of my life,” he says in the video. “And from this day forward, I’m a believer.”

A Battle High School standout from Columbia, Mo., McQuitty redshirted his freshman season at Nebraska.
