Alex Delton won’t finish his career at Kansas State.
Delton, who a fourth-year junior quarterback on the Wildcats, announced Tuesday on his personal Twitter account that he will transfer out of the program.
“Kansas State is truly a special place,” Delton wrote in. “This University has taught me life-long lessons and values that I will never forget. I am beyond blessed to play for a Hall of Famer in Coach (Bill) Snyder, who truly works harder than anyone I’ve ever known.”
Delton appereared in seven games this past season, making two starts. He completed 55 percent (44-for-80) of his pass attempts for 554 yards and two touchdowns. Delton also ran for 234 yards and two touchdowns on 85 carries.
Delton and the Wildcats weren’t able to extend the program’s bowl streak to nine seasons, falling in the finale at then-No. 25 Iowa State to end the regular season 5-7.
Even so, Delton made a point to acknowledge the teammates he’s grown so close with over the past four seasons.
“No matter what, we have always stayed together and believed in one another,” he wrote. “Through ups and downs — from being a starter, winning games, scoring touchdowns and being named MVP of a bowl game win — these things do NOT [sic] even compare to the greatest honor I’ve achieved by having my brothers vote me as their team captain this past year. These memories will last forever.”
