Junior wide receiver Dominique Heath and junior running back Dalvin Warmack announced they will be transferring from Kansas State.

As graduate transfers, the tandem took to Twitter on Sunday to announce their college football careers would resume elsewhere next season.

Heath, from Huntersville, N.C., said he wants "to continue my football career closer to home."

Heath leaves the Wildcats with 95 receptions for 947 yards and seven touchdowns. In 2017, he had career lows in catches (22), yards (196) and touchdowns (one).

"I came here as a boy and I am leaving as a man," Heath wrote on Twitter. "The experiences and life lessons I learned here as a student-athlete is something that I will forever be grateful for. It is with a full heart that I inform my fans that I have come to the decision to graduate in May and continue my football career somewhere closer to home."

Warmack, from Blue Springs, Mo., rushed for 527 yards and three touchdowns on 101 carries with Kansas State. In 2017, he rushed for 285 yards and three touchdowns.

"I will be transferring after I graduate this May for my final year of eligibility," Warmack said via Twitter. "After a lot of thought and discussion with my family, I believe this is what is in my best interest. I am in the process of searching for a new school. Thank you to all of the fans, my teammates and family for your support over the last four years."
