The transfer of freshman Jordan Davis on Feb. 24 left Texas A&M without a scholarship tight end on the roster. That problem was remedied quickly with the announced transfer of Virginia Tech's Kalvin Cline to Texas A&M on Sunday.
Kline had 26 receptions for 321 yards in his freshman season, under the tutelage of current Texas A&M Wide Receivers Coach Aaron Moorehead. An injury caused him to miss all but one game in the 2014 season and he played in only 2 games in 2015. Kline will graduate from Virginia Tech in May (after only three years on campus) and be eligible to play immediately for the Aggies. He has two years of eligibility remaining. In addition to Kline, it's anticipated that incoming freshman Aaron Hansford will also see time at tight end when fall practice begins.
Interestingly, Kline was a member of Virginia Tech's Corps of Cadets, enrolling his sophomore year. It's unclear if he will join the Corps of Cadets at A&M.
