The Howard Bison quarterback posted an announcement on Twitter, sharing that he will officially be entering the NCAA transfer portal after he graduates from Howard next May.

"After speaking with my family and some of the greats who have played at this prestigious university, they have all contributed to giving me the clarity and guidance to make the decision I think is best for my future," Caylin wrote on Twitter.

 

 

"I will finish what I started academically by graduating this May," Caylin – who is a junior - continued. "As of my athletic career, I have officially declared to be put into the NCAA transfer portal with two years left of eligibility."

In the post, he thanked his teammates, coaches and the fans for his time with the Bison. It’s a sad day for the university.

Sports Illustrated breaks down what Caylin accomplished during his time at Howard:

As a true freshman making his debut in 2017 against UNLV, Newton led Howard to a 43-40 win while rushing for 190 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries and contributing 140 yards in the air.

Newton earned Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Rookie of the Year honors for his freshman campaign and the MEAC Offensive Player of the Year award in 2018. He posted 2,629 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and 17 interceptions on 304 attempts as a sophomore and rushed for 504 yards and four touchdowns.

Caylin started the first four games of 2019, but he reportedly sat out the fifth game against Bethune-Cookman in order to save a year of eligibility. By only playing four games, that allows him to redshirt this season under new rules. He will have two years of NCAA eligibility remaining after redshirting this season.

Will he end up at his brother’s alma mater? We shall see….
