Bobcats land transfer TE from Miami

BOZEMAN — Beau Sandland, a tight end from the University of Miami (Fla.), has transferred to Montana State University, enrolled in classes, and joined the Bobcat football team, MSU head coach Rob Ash said Wednesday. He will redshirt in 2014 and play as a senior next fall.

The Woodland Hills, Calif., product played as a junior at Miami in 2013, catching nine passes for 94 yards and a touchdown while playing in each of the Hurricanes’ 13 games. Six of the catches, including the touchdown, came against Savannah State. He also caught two passes against South Florida, and one against Florida State.

“Beau is a big, strong, athletic player who really will be a great addition for us at tight end next year,” Ash said. “He is an accomplished player and I’m excited to see him perform.”

Sandland was the nation’s top-rated junior college tight end recruit in 2012, and was among the top prep tight ends in the nation two seasons prior. As a sophomore at Pierce College in 2011, he caught 24 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns in earning all-league honors. He played high school football at Simi Valley.
