Texas A&M adds former Fresno State TE Tre Watson via transfer portal

Since offensive coordinator Collin Klein’s arrival, he has had his eye on adding an experienced tight end to the roster.

Klein and Mike Elko have done just that as 6-foot-5, 245-pound Tre Watson announced his plans to transfer from Fresno State to Texas A&M.

After entering the portal, Watson previously committed to Washington on Christmas Eve.

As a junior in 2023, Watson recorded 38 receptions for 378 yards and four touchdowns on his way to honorable mention All-Mountain West honors.

Over the course of his three-year Fresno State career, he played in 33 games and recorded 56 receptions for 592 yards and four scores.

Originally from Rio Rancho (NM) Cleveland High School, Watson chose the Bulldogs over the likes of Liberty, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Texas State, Army and Air Force as a three-star prospect in the class of 2021.

He now rejoins friend and former Fresno State teammate Jaylen Henderson at A&M, and he picked the Aggies over offers from Houston and Washington.

Watson becomes the Aggies’ 20th addition from the transfer portal in this cycle.

We’ll have more soon for our TexAgs Premium subscribers.

I like that he and Henderson were former teammates (now teammates again). That familiarity will help if they ever see the field together. It'll also help Watson acclimate quicker.

Speaking of Henderson, I've not seen any informaton post the bowl game as to the actual injury he sustainted and his current status.
Anyone have any updates?

Saw somewhere it was a broken humerus, had surgery day after game and should be ready for spring practice...also was non throwing arm so could have been worse.

Having said that I hope Henderson doesn't see the field
Much point forward unless it's in blowout wins. Nothing against Henderson but it means we haven't kept our 5* stud QB in one piece.
