Nation's top uncommitted QB Haynes King torn on top 4, including 3 SEC teams
The nation’s top uncommitted QB Haynes King (Longview, Texas) currently leads the Elite 11 competition after two days of the event.
King previously narrowed down his final four teams — Auburn, Duke, Tennessee and Texas A&M, but he has yet to make a final decision. That was expected last Wednesday; however, the Longview, Texas, native decided to wait until a later date. The reason? Well, he’s torn between his finalists.
247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong caught up with King at the Elite 11 competition, and King explained his thought process.
“It just didn’t happen,” King said about his scheduled commitment last Wednesday. “I’m still trying to dig for that, which school is going to separate from the others and when I find it will probably make my decision then and let all the coaches know.
“I took those four official visits this month, and right now as both of them, all four of them have their differences,” he added. “Right now, I’m trying to find the best situation for me and my family. I haven’t yet found it in my mind because all four of those schools are really good schools. … My mind was still kind of a blur before I took (the official visits), and now I got to see new things and see more of the schools and I felt like I can thrive in that community of all four of them.”
Most figure that Tennessee and Texas A&M are King’s top two schools, with Auburn and Duke somewhat on the outside looking in; however, he hasn’t made that public and likely never will.
King is rated a 4-star prospect and ranks as the nation’s No. 3 dual-threat QB and the state of Texas’ No. 13 overall prospect for the class of 2020, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
