Model builder parameters

In the beginning of my model, I need for it to reproject a raster. I'm taking the raster from "NAD_1986_NSRS2007_Transvers_Mercator" to "WGS_1984_UTM_Zone_16N" using the geographic transformation "NAD_1983_NSRS2007_To_WGS_1984_1".

This process runs fine by itself, but when I place it into model builder and create a variable that is a model parameter, there is no drop down box to select the appropriate transformation. I am currently trying to create a stand alone variable that I can just attribute with the correct transformation and have placed into the reprojection tool's parameters. I can't figure out which type of variable to create it as, though. For example, later in the model I have a few other stand alone variables that are created as "Field" type and their attribute is input into the appropriate parameter field.

Update: I can make a variable of type "string" and type "any type" and they both show that they can connect to the geographic transformation field, but when I click to do so they don't.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
