Texas A&M lands transfer TE, flips productive player away from Pac-12 program
Texas A&M picked up another piece for the 2024 season out of the transfer portal. This time, flipping a tight end commitment away from Washington.
The player is Tre Watson, a 3-year contributor for Fresno State. The 6-foot-5 and 245-pound Watson is coming off his best season with the Bulldogs and has a chance to carve out a role with Mike Elko’s squad in 2024.
Watson originally committed to come out of the portal with a pledge to Washington on Christmas Eve. Kalen DeBoer, Washington’s head coach at the time of Watson’s decision, originally coached the TE during his 2021 freshman season at Fresno State.
However, with DeBoer’s move to Alabama, Watson was back in the portal and eventually committed to Mike Elko’s Aggies Saturday night:

Originally a 3-star recruit out of New Mexico, Watson appeared in 33 games for Fresno State. This past season, he set career-high numbers with 38 catches for 378 yards and 4 touchdowns. Now, Watson will look to carve out a key role with the A&M offense as we head into the 2024 season.
