WR Golson latest Delaware State Hornet set to transfer

DOVER, Delaware -- Another player is leaving the Delaware State University football team for his final season.

Wide receiver Malik Golson, a Smyrna High product, is transferring to Murray State. Golson is set to receive his undergraduate degree from DSU this spring and will be eligible to play immediately for the Racers via the graduate transfer rule.

Golson is the second Hornet to elect to finish his collegiate career elsewhere in the last few months. Gabe Sherrod, DSU’s leader in sacks and tackles for loss from a year ago, transferred to Syracuse and will also use the graduate transfer rule.

Golson played three seasons for the Hornets and finished second on the team in receiving each year. He racked up 517 yards as a freshman in 2013, but last season averaged a career high 14.0 yards per catch, to go along with three touchdowns. In his career at DelState, Golson caught 100 passes for 1,072 yards and nine touchdowns.

He was also DSU’s No. 1 punt returner every year of his career with 154 yards on 20 punts for an average of 7.7 yards per return. Golson was also utilized as a kick returner during his time as a Hornet, reeling off 281 yards on 20 returns for an average of 14.1 yards per return.
