Delton will play for former Kansas State offensive coordinator Dana Dimel, who coached Delton before taking the head job at UTEP last year. Delton will join the Wildcats as a graduate transfer and will be eligible to play immediately.
Delton, a running quarterback, put up 734 yards on the ground and 1,191 through the air as a part-time starter for the Wildcats over the past two seasons. Skylar Thompson eventually won the starting job away from Delton early this year.
UTEP, which ended with a record of 1-11, played three different quarterbacks this year. All three finished with more interceptions than touchdown passes.
