Jackson State football receiver Seven McGee out of transfer portal

After dipping his toe in the transfer portal waters, former Oregon running back/wide receiver Seven McGee has decided to head back to Jackson State.

McGee announced his decision to return to JSU on Thursday. 

“After a great talk with Coach Taylor, I’ll be staying and finishing my senior year at Jackson State. Go Tigers,” McGee tweeted.

That comes just days after he tweeted this: 

“I’ll be entering my name in the transfer portal with 2 years of eligibility remaining,” McGee tweeted on Monday. “Thank you Jackson!”

McGee caught 19 passes for 136 yards and four touchdowns — all career-highs — his lone season at JSU. Jackson State football went 7-4 in its first season under rookie head coach T.C. Taylor. 

The Rochester, NY native was the ninth-ranked running back in the 2021 recruiting class by 247Sports, and was ranked as the top-ranked player in the state by the site. He committed to the program in Dec. 2018 after being recruited by a number of Power Five programs, including Colorado. He was recruited by Mario Cristobal, who is now the head coach at Miami. 

Seven McGee played in 13 of 14 games as a true freshman for Oregon, starting the season at running back before transitioning to receiver as he rushed 14 times for 61 yards and a touchdown while adding seven receptions for 84 yards in 2021. He briefly entered the transfer portal following his freshman season, only to return to Eugene. McGee played in six games — catching 11 passes for 67 yards — in 2022 before deciding to hit the portal.

McGee had offers from Nevada, UMass, and Florida A&M posted to his Twitter account but ultimately chose Jackson State football as Deion Sanders was on his way out. He appears to now be back in the fold.
