Hurricanes recruiting: Miami lands TE Beau Sandland

ESPN's No. 2 junior college tight end picks Miami over Arizona State and Nebraska.

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Pierce Community College tight end Beau Sandland signed with the Miami Hurricanes on Wednesday, declaring his intent to transfer to Miami after two seasons in the junior college ranks.

Sandland, ESPN's No. 2 junior college tight end in the country, chose the Hurricanes over the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Arizona State Sun Devils, who were both vying for his services according to a report from the Orlando Sun Sentinel.

In two seasons with Pierce, Sandland caught 44 balls for 532 combined yards, but the 6-foot-6 tight end's size really interested many FBS programs.

Sandland is expected to contribute immediately to Miami, which was led last season by tight end Clive Walford, who caught 25 passes for 451 yards.

Miami's recruiting class now contains 11 players, according to the Sun Sentinel, but has been hit recently by some changes in commitment. Sandland's commitment came on the first day junior college players were eligible to sign with four-year colleges.
