Texas A&M landed a commitment from Trevor Wood on Wednesday.
The graduate transfer tight end from Arizona will be leaving the program that Kevin Sumlin just took over in favor of the program that recently let him go. Due to the NCAA’s graduate transfer rules, Wood is expectedly to be eligible to compete for Jimbo Fisher’s Aggies this fall.
“So blessed and excited to say that I have committed to TEXAS A&M,” Wood wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “Thank you @TimBrewster and Coach Fisher for the opportunity! #GigEm”
Here’s a look at the Tweet from Wood announcing the big news:

Wood, who also played defensive end at times for Arizona, did not leave the Wildcats program on bad terms according to Arizona Daily Star beat reporter Michael Lev.
“Wood tells me he has been given his release to transfer,” Lev wrote on Twitter back in January. “Will be a grad transfer witout restrictions. NOT related to UA coaching change. Wants to go to school that makes better use of TE. Wood played DE in Foster Farms Bowl but prefers to play on offense.
Wood was the No. 26 tight end in the nation coming out of Chaparral High in Scottsdale, Ariz. for the Class of 2014, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Wood caught 2 passes for 14 yards and a touchdown during the 2017 season, and had 9 catches for 63 yards during his Arizona career.
He will have one season of eligibility remaining.
