The Sooners have yet to successfully nab a tight end in their search to fill out the 2013 recruiting class, despite putting offers out to three different athletes. Beau Sandland, a 6'5'', 250-pound specimen, would go a long way toward filling that void.
He's widely regarded as the top remaining JUCO prospect at his position, having played at Pierce Community College in California. One of his former teammates, cornerback Kass Everett, committed to Oklahoma in 2011 and is working to have Sandland join him in Norman.
Sandland is still in the information gathering stage, having yet to reach a decision.
Things could be a lot worse than having a lot of coaches wanting to call you and see you in person, Sandland said. It’s a good problem to have. At my high school we didn’t have any scouts coming through. We weren’t very good so people didn’t care. (via Bob Przybylo of ESPN.com)
The Sooners coaching staff certainly cares and it's shown.
I talk to Coach [Bruce] Kittle on the phone frequently, and I’ve even talked with Coach [Bob] Stoops a couple of times, Sandland said. I’m very comfortable with the OU staff, and I definitely want to see what the school has to offer.
It appears OU has put itself in great position with Sandland, but only time will tell what university he'll pick.
