Texas A&M sophomore tight end Glenn Beal has entered the NCAA transfer portal, reported on Monday, citing sources.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Beal played in nine games this season, making five receptions for 21 yards. Beal started against Clemson, Lamar and Auburn.

Beal was expected to get more playing time when highly touted true freshman Baylor Cupp, who graduated early and took part in spring drills, was injured in fall camp.

Beal did see the field more earlier in the season, but true freshman Jalen Wydermyer who didn't take part in spring drills took over the position midway through the season and ended with 31 receptions for 419 yards with six touchdowns.

A&M's third tight end this season was junior walkon Ryan Renick, who didn’t get cleared for contact until the Clemson week had three receptions for 31 yards, having grabs in each of the last two games.

Beal did not play in Saturday’s 50-7 loss at LSU.
