Tight end Brendan Landman wasn’t a highly decorated recruit. He was considered a two-star prospect by Rivals.com. But he impressed Arizona State’s coaching staff enough to garner playing time this season as a true freshman.
Landman didn’t register a catch, but he was one of only 10 freshman to contribute to Todd Graham‘s squad.
Despite a promising start to his career, Landman decided to leave the program according to AZCentral.com’s Doug Haller:
Confirmed that ASU freshman tight end Brendan Landman has left the team. One of 10 true scholarship freshmen to play this season.

ASUDevils.com reported that Landman plans to transfer. Multiple schools could be interested after the 6-6 tight end received playing time in the Pac-12 Conference.
Landman originally choose Arizona State over San Jose State. The Spartans could be an option if Landman wants to play closer to his home in Danville, California.
If the talented tight end decides to transfer to another FBS program, he’ll have to sit out the 2015 season due to NCAA transfer rules. Landman will still have three years of eligibility remaining.
