The Texas A&M football team has the best overall prospect in the country. Well… a country. Ohrstrom is the top overall prospect in Sweden and a four-star recruit. One of the Aggies top-overall commits in any upcoming class just moved up from the 2023 class to the 2022 class.

This means that he’ll be in College Station for next season.

Ohrstrom may not be the easiest recruit to watch, but he’s an extremely talented tight end. At 6’6″ and 245 pounds, he’s built like a player who could step into an SEC game to find success. Heck, he may even have to do this, as the timing could work out perfectly.

Texas A&M football TE commit Theodor Ohrstrom’s reclassification lines up well with a key departure

In all likelihood, the Texas A&M football team’s top tight end from the last three seasons in Jalen Wydermyer will be gone after this season. He already leads the school in all-time receiving yards from his position, and quite frankly, A&M fans have been spoiled to be able to watch him with such consistency.

Wydermyer was an elite tight end as soon as his freshman season, recording 30 receptions for 406 yards in his first year. He also pulled in four touchdowns that year. In total, Wydermyer has accumulated 1,359 yards in his career which, again, is the highest total of any Aggie tight end of all time.

His departure will align perfectly with Theodor Ohrstrom’s arrival, as the Swedish tight end’s reclassification has him arriving in College Station a year sooner than anticipated. On the other side of things, Wydermyer will likely depart for the NFL Draft after this current season.

With Wydermyer getting such early action, Fisher has made it clear that he’s not afraid to play a first-year tight end. Even though there are other tight ends on the roster, Ohrstrom could compete for that spot as early as his first season.

This move could even indicate the fact that Wydermyer will be leaving early, as Ohrstrom would be more eager to get on campus if the position had opened up. That said, this is entirely speculation.

Either way, Theo Ohstrom is an elite talent for the Aggies down the road. With elite size and above-average speed for a player of his stature, he could be unguardable for opposing defenses. He would present even more of a physical mismatch than Wydermyer.

Let’s hope he finds immediate playing time.
