Ex-Michigan State QB Theo Day transfers to Northern Iowa
Former Michigan State quarterback Theo Day has transferred to Northern Iowa, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.
Day entered the transfer portal in late April shortly after the Spartans completed spring drills.
Day was the third-string quarterback in 2020 and didn’t see any action. He got into two games in 2019 as a redshirt freshman and completed 2 of 3 passes for 12 yards.
Day redshirted in 2018 in his first season on campus.
Northern Iowa, an FCS program, returns two-year starter Will McElvain, who had a rough 2021 spring season after being stellar as a redshirt freshman in the fall of 2019.
McElvain missed two games due to a COVID-19 quarantine and passed for 938 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in five games.
In 2019, McElvain passed for 2,778 yards and 20 touchdowns against seven interceptions in 15 games.
