After Hawaii WR Dylan Collie announced a couple weeks ago that he will transfer from Hawaii for his final year of eligibility, many assumed that BYU would be near the top of his list.
Sure enough, BYU is making a hard push for the graduate transfer and former Cougar, as offensive coordinator Jeff Grimes and WR coach Fesi Sitake traveled out to the islands to meet up with Collie. Dylan tweeted out the following picture and message Monday night:
Great Home visit with @fsitake & @coachgrimey this evening in the 808! Their trip out here, and a second chance with BYU mean the world. pic.twitter.com/ABxgJdvkCz— Dylan Collie (@23Collie) January 30, 2018
We all know BYU needs immediate help on the offensive side of the ball, and Collie would provide an immediate boost of talent. Collie would arguably be BYU’s number one WR, and would take some pressure of star TE Matt Bushman.
Collie finished his junior season with 56 receptions, 636 receiving yards and 4 TD’s, which all would have led BYU this past season.
Collie has already been offered a scholarship by Vanderbilt, and is being pursued by a handful of other schools.
Words don’t do it justice, but thank you @Coach_Ludwig for the visit and scholarship offer to play ball at @VandyFootbal! #AnchorDown pic.twitter.com/tKNCkeuZGz— Dylan Collie (@23Collie) January 24, 2018
If you take the super scientific approach and compare the two smiles and message of the tweets, BYU is DEFINITELY in the lead.
Here’s to a Collie comeback in Provo.
