Andre Hardy, a former basketball player at Cal State Fullerton and Oral Roberts, was signed by the Raiders Thursday as a tight end.

Hardy, 25, had a Pro Day in San Diego on April 4 that was reportedly attended by seven teams. The 49ers recently had him in for a visit.

Although Hardy (6-foot-5, 250 pounds) was a basketball player at St. Augustine High School in San Diego and throughout college, his father Andre was a running back at Weber State and Saint Mary's who played parts of three seasons in the NFL (1984, 85, 87) with Philadelphia, Seattle and San Francisco.
