A few months ago junior college tight end Beau Sandland (Woodland Hills, Calif./Pierce College) reached out to his coaches to see if they had any contacts at Texas.

“I was under the impression that they don’t recruit outside of the state of Texas, which I know they don’t very often,” said Sandland, who caught 20 passes for 265 yards and two scores last season. “When they do, I knew it was kind of a double-whammy against me because I know they don’t go the juco route that often.
