A one-time starter who had slid down the depth chart as his career progressed, Brayden Dickey is set to graduate from Washington this spring. And with a year of eligibility remaining, he now has a destination for that final season.

Dickey, who during his career with the Huskies went by the last name of Lenius but had it legally changed in December, announced his intention to transfer in January. That came after a 2017 season in which he appeared in all 13 games (including a start against at Colorado) but had just 9 catches for 89 yards.
For his career Dickey had 42 receptions for 452 yards and 3 touchdowns, his best season coming in 2015 when he had 26 catches for 307 yards and 3 scores. Dickey redshirted in 2016.
New Mexico may not provide many more pass-catching opportunities, as the Lobos are traditionally a run-first program. Last year they averaged 45.2 runs per game, 16th-most in FBS, and completed only 120 passes in 12 games.
