A player who struggled to see the playing field at Stanford has decided to move on for an opportunity to do so elsewhere.
BYU announced earlier this week that Keanu Nelson has decided to transfer into the Cougars football program. The school stated in its release that the wide receiver has already signed a scholarship agreement.
Because he will be a graduate transfer, Nelson will be eligible to play for the Cougars immediately in 2014.
“We look forward to having Keanu join our program,” head coach Bronco Mendenhall said in a statement. “He is a talented athlete and his high football IQ should serve him well during his transition while preparing to contribute to our team this season.”
Nelson caught just one pass in 2013 for the Cardinal. He was a three-star member of Stanford’s 2010 recruiting class, rated as the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Arizona.
