Texas A&M is left with only walk-on tight ends after the sole scholarship player at the position announced he intends to transfer from the university on Wednesday night.

Jordan Davis caught just two passes as a true freshman, but played in 11 games and was expected to be an impact player in Noel Mazzone’s offense, according to Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle. With so little depth at the tight end position, his announcement of intentions to transfer is a surprise for many.
After the departure of Davis, the Aggies have two tight ends on the roster, Grant Gustafson and Greer Shetler, neither of whom caught a pass as freshmen in 2015. None of the 21 players signed by Texas A&M from the 2016 signing day class are listed as tight ends.
Davis came to Texas A&M over offers from other SEC schools like Auburn, Florida and Mississippi State, and was the No. 10 tight end in the Class of 2015, according to the 24/7 Sports composite rankings.
