He’s coming back!!
Hawaii WR Dylan Collie announced late Friday afternoon that he is transferring to BYU for his final season of eligibility. Collie made the announcement via twitter:
Very few times in life do you get a second chance. Can’t wait to be back At Brigham to take advantage of what the coaches are giving me the opportunity to do! #GoCougs @BYUfootball #2018 #DillyDilly pic.twitter.com/w69qmvRrBq— Dylan Collie (@23Collie) March 10, 2018
Collie redshirted at BYU before his mission during the 2012 season.
After returning home, Collie transferred to Hawaii where he was one of Hawaii’s best receivers over the past three seasons. He had a stellar junior season for the Rainbow Warriors, as he finished with 56 receptions, 636 receiving yards and 4 TD’s; all of those stats would have led BYU this past season. For his career (3 seasons), Collie has 118 receptions, 1,300 yards and 9 TD’s.
Collie had interest from the ACC and SEC as well, as he had offers and made official visits to Vanderbilt and Wake Forest.
Collie’s return is no doubt a big boost for BYU’s offense. With the lack of a clear-cut number one WR, Collie will have the chance to come in during fall camp and seize the #1 WR spot. No one on BYU’s roster has the receiving production that Collie has. BYU’s offense still has a lot to prove, but the duo of Matt Bushman and Dylan Collie is a nice start for whoever will be throwing the ball for BYU.
Always good to have another Collie in Provo!! We’ll enjoying watching Dylan on the field during his senior season in 2018!
