Hawaii WR Dylan Collie Has Decided To Transfer
The Warrior wide out is moving on as a graduate transfer
Hawaii loses a top offensive weapon.
Hawaii’s is losing wide receiver Dylan Collie who has announced that he has decided to transfer from the Warriors program. Collie is a graduate transfer and is eligible immediately for one more year of college football.
He made the decision Tuesday night from his twitter account.
“I want to thank all my coaches, teammates, and support staff at the University of Hawaii for all the wonderful experiences I’ve had over the last three years,” Collie said.
“With that said, I have (decided) that it’s in mine and my family’s best interest to finish my college football career elsewhere and further my academic studies following graduation this May. I look forward to seeing where I will continue to play the sport I love and where I will start working toward my graduate degree.”
Collie was the teams leading receiver with 56 catches and was second in yards (636) and touchdowns with four. For his career, he had 1,300 receiving yards and nine touchdowns.
Hawaii’s poor season may have had some to do with it as the team was just 3-9 and lost seven games by 10 points or more. However, 2018 seemed to have some potential with quarterback Dru Brown returning and wide receiver John Ursua is going to be back after he recovered from his ACL tear which was a reason the 2017 season did not go as planned.
Collie has not mentioned where he may go but some chatter is that he may return to BYU. He is of the faith and was part of the 2012 class but went on a mission before setting foot on the football field in Provo, but then left for Hawaii due to the prior coaching staff.
He also has other connections to BYU in Austin Collie who is his older brother and a former NFL wide receiver. His other brother and father were also at BYU, so the name is very familiar with those at BYU.
