Tristen Hoge transfers to BYU
Observer Sports Staff | Monday, June 5, 2017
Notre Dame lost an offensive lineman Monday night as BYU announced that former four-star prospect Tristen Hoge will transfer out west.
Hoge is a redshirt sophomore with three years of eligibility left, but the 6-foot-4, 303-pound lineman will have to sit out a year before playing, per NCAA rules, leaving him able to play starting in 2018.
Hoge was a backup in his first two years at Notre Dame behind senior Sam Mustipher at center and graduate student Colin McGovern at right guard. He played in six games in 2016.
Hoge is a native of Pocatello, Idaho, and a cousin of current BYU quarterback Beau Hoge.
With Hoge leaving, sophomore Parker Boudreaux will likely see time at backup center, and graduate student Hunter Bivin could also be called upon to spend time at the position.
