KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Quarterback Alex Delton has announced he is leaving the Kansas State Football program.
On Tuesday, the redshirt junior tweeted that he would graduate from K-State and then move on to another school. Delton has yet to say what school he will be attending.
Being a graduate transfer allows Delton to play for his new team immediately next season.
“This University has taught me life-long lessons and values that I will never forget,” said Delton in his tweet. “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 played in 20 games for the Wildcats and started in six. In the 2018 season, he was a team captain and completed 44 of 80 passes for 554 yards with two touchdowns.
Last season, Delton was the 2017 Cactus Bowl Offensive MVP and 2017 First Team Academic All-Big 12.
Delton and Independence, Mo. native Skylar Thompson battled for the starting quarterback over the summer. Into the season, the job was given to Thompson.
According to his tweeted statement, Delton will be at a new university in January.
