Utah senior wide receiver Delshawn McClellon took to Instagram and Twitter today to announce that he was planning to transfer from The U. Delshawn's best season at The U was in 2014 when he played in all 12 games with two starts (Idaho State and Fresno State). He pulled in seven receptions for 98 yards on the season, with and a touchdown, including two passes for 22 yards and a score against Colorado State in the Las Vegas Bowl. In 2015, he only had one catch for for 12 yards against UCLA.
McClellon has always been one of, if not, the fastest players on the team, with a sub 4.4 forty. That speed just didn't translate on the field for the Utes, as Mcclellon struggled to see the field during his career at Utah. He did show up in the two-deep at times through out the past season, but just couldn't stay in the rotation consistently.
It'll be interesting to see how Utah handles the wide receivers this up coming season, as they will have lost Kenneth Scott, Britain Covey, Bubba Poole and now likely McClellon.
Stuff like this happens every season, and we all wish Delshawn the best of luck, because once a Ute, always a Ute!
The Utah athletic department is yet to release any official statement on Mcclellan's possible transfer.
You have been good to me Utah, met some real people and created… https://t.co/uKlDVfXGhp— Delshawn Roadrunner (@Del_Mcc) February 9, 2016
