Kordell Pillans plays in college football game for Mesa Community College in 2018. 

Kodiak’s Kordell Pillans makes his debut for the University of Montana football team Saturday. 

The Grizzlies open the 2019 season at South Dakota. Kick off is at 9 a.m. Alaska Standard Time.

Pillans, a 2016 graduate of Kodiak High School, transferred to Montana after two seasons at Mesa Community College in Arizona. 

The 6-foot-6, 333-pound redshirt junior is a right guard for Montana. The depth chart lists the right guard starting spot as an “or” between Pillans and redshirt freshman Tyler Ganoung. 

Pilllans was a two-star prospect at Mesa. He did not allow a sack as a sophomore, which earned him second-team all-region honors. 

Montana is in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision and plays in the Big Sky Conference.

Saturday’s game will be streamed on ESPN+
