Longview’s Haynes King Offered By Tennessee
The 16th Division I FBS scholarship offer arrived Tuesday for Longview 2020 quarterback Haynes King.
The Lobos' signal-caller was offered by Tennessee, according to Longview head coach John King.
Haynes King (6-3, 180) also holds Power 5 offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, and TCU.
As a junior, Haynes King led Longview to its first state championship since 1937. In guiding the Lobos to the 6A Division II title, he passed for 3,665 yards with 41 touchdowns and four interceptions, while rushing for 568 yards and eight touchdowns.
Tennessee competes in the SEC, and is coached by Jeremy Pruitt. The Volunteers were 5-7 overall (2-6 in conference) in 2018.
King, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any program that offers him in December of 2019.
