Abdul Najee Beecham (b. March 5, 1997) is a big offensive lineman who had a successful 2015 season in the community college ranks before signing with K-State, enrolling in January and participating in the spring game.

He started at right tackle for the Purple team and will battle for a spot along the interior of the offensive line in 2016.

Beecham played under head coach Sean McAuliffe at Judson High School, where he was a two-time first-team all-district selection as a junior and senior, while he earned second-team all-state Class 5A honors from the Texas Sports Writers Association honors as a junior and third-team Class 6A accolades as a senior.

He also was named to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football’s preseason Class 6A all-state team in 2014.

After graduating from high school, Beecham played one season at Blinn College under head coach Keith Thomas.

He helped the Buccaneers to earn a 5-4 record and was voted an honorable mention All-Southwest Junior College Football Conference offensive lineman as a freshman in 2015 after not allowing a sack the entire season.

Beecham still has a redshirt season available, if needed. You can watch his JUCO highlights below:
