UTEP’s crowded quarterback room just got even more crowded on Thursday. Former Kansas State quarterback Alex Delton announcing his plans to transfer to UTEP as a gradate transfer.
Delton has seen extensive playing time throughout his career at Kansas State, playing in 20 games and starting in six of those contests. He is dual-threat, totaling over 2,000 total yards and 16 touchdowns in his career as a Wildcat. His most productive seasons came under UTEP head coach Dana Dimel, who was his offensive coordinator at Kansas State from 2015-2017.
Delton will be immediately eligible to play in 2019 and will seemingly compete with Kai Locksley for the starting quarterback job when fall camp opens in August.
