Baylor Offers Longview’s Haynes King
One of East Texas' top recruits in the 2020 class picked up yet another Division I FBS scholarship offer on Friday.
Longview junior quarterback Haynes King was offered by Baylor, according to Lobos head football coach John King.
Haynes King (6-3, 180) now holds 14 FBS offers. Baylor is the second Big 12 school to offer, joining TCU. His other Power 5 offers are Arkansas, Auburn, Minnesota, and Missouri.
So far this season, Haynes King has thrown for 3,153 yards with 39 touchdowns and three interceptions. He also has 449 yards and seven touchdowns rushing.
Haynes King and Longview (14-0) will face Amarillo Tascosa (11-3) in a Class 6A Division II state semifinal at 8 p.m. Saturday from AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
Baylor just finished its second regular season under head coach Matt Rhule. The Bears were 6-6 overall and 4-5 in Big 12 play, and will face Vanderbilt on Dec. 27 in the Texas Bowl in Houston.
Haynes King, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any program that offers him in December of 2019.
