Oklahoma Grad Transfer Christian Daimler Lands At Texas A&M

Christian Daimler has found a new home.

Late last month, former Oklahoma offensive tackle Christian Daimler announced he would be leaving the Oklahoma football program. Just over a week later, and Daimler has found his new home.

Daimler announced his commitment to Texas A&M for his final year of eligibility. The longtime Sooner took to Twitter to share a photo with his new coach.

247Sports rated Daimler as the No. 100 offensive tackle in the 2013 class, and the No. 197 player in the state of Texas. Daimler also held offers from Arizona State, Colorado, and Colorado State before committing to the Sooners.

The 6-foot-7, 320-pound tackle provides a huge pillar of the Aggies offensive line, which struggled to protect quarterback Trevor Knight, who also transferred to A&M from Oklahoma, at times last year.

Daimler redshirted during his first season in Norman and didn't see the field in either his freshman or sophomore seasons. As a junior during the 2016 season, he appeared in three games but was stuck behind first-team All-Big 12 offensive tackle Orlando Brown and honorable mention tackle Bobby Evans.

Daimler should get the chance to fight for a starting position during his final year of eligibility after graduating from Oklahoma in 2016.
