Arizona quarterback Brandon Dawkins announces transfer after May graduation

Arizona’s 2017 season turned around when quarterback Khalil Tate was inserted into the lineup early in an October game at Colorado. Now the player he replaced is moving on.

Brandon Dawkins, who was the Wildcats’ opening week starter in 2017, announced his intent to transfer after completing his degree in May. As a graduate transfer, Dawkins will be immediately eligible to play elsewhere.

Dawkins started 14 games for Arizona, nine in 2016 and the first five of last season. He was injured on the Wildcats’ first series Oct. 7 at Colorado and replaced by Tate, who went on to set and FBS quarterback record with 327 rushing yards and ended up starting Arizona’s final eight games.

In three seasons, Dawkins threw for 2,415 yards and 15 touchdowns and ran for 1,582 yards and 20 scores.
