Texas A&M Aggies offensive lineman Robert Congel is transferring to the Arizona Wildcats, according to Rivals.

Congel just finished his true freshman season in College Station, where he appeared in five games as a backup guard.

The 6-foot-3, 315-pound Congel was a walk-on at Texas A&M, so he might be able to play immediately at Arizona. If not, he will have to sit out the 2018 season before having three years of eligibility.

The Greenwood Village, Colorado native attended the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida and was unranked out of high school, per 247Sports. But he was a first-team all-conference and all-state player.

Congel also helped lead Denver Cherry Creek High School to a state title in 2014. He was recruited by new Arizona head coach Kevin Sumlin and company while he was still at Texas A&M.

It’s a little too early to know how Congel will help the Wildcats’ offensive line, but at minimum, he’ll add some size and depth to a pretty young unit.
