No. 1 QB Pick Haynes King lands with Texas A&M Aggies

Texas A&M Aggies And Jimbo Fisher Snag No. 1 QB Recruit Haynes King

Former Florida State head coach and now Texas A&M frontman Jimbo Fisher acquired this week the first-ranked quarterback recruit Haynes King.

The top quarterback in the ESPN 300 announced his commitment to A&M on Wednesday, and remains the 19th-best prospect in the ESPN 300. King played high school football in East Texas at Longview High School.

“[Coach] Jimbo Fisher, he’s proven to develop quarterbacks and put them into the [NFL],” King told the News-Journal, according to ESPN. “He’s been very successful at that. He coaches you hard, and I’m used to that. He coaches you like you’re his son.”

The Aggies are bouncing back into the top of the SEC fold after acquiring multiple new recruits from the newest class. King led his high school team 16-0, and won the Texas 6A championship as a junior. He also played in the 2020 Under Armour All-American Game. In 2018, he threw for almost 4,000 yards for 42 touchdowns, rushed for over 650 yards and threw just four interceptions.

“When I was in elementary school I was always on the sideline with my dad so I pictured myself winning a state championship,” King said, according to 247 Sports. “Then as I grow older and got into high school I started watching college a little more and now I’m picturing myself winning a National Championship.”

It was believed King favored heading to Tennessee before taking his visit to Texas A&M. He also visited Auburn and Duke before making his decision. He had the opportunity to talk to Fisher and the A&M offensive coordinator Darrell Dicky, and it’s undoubtable the elite coaching staff swayed King’s decision.

“I’ve always loved playing sports, competing. It’s not the fact you love to win, it’s kind of the fact you hate to lose,” he said, according to 247 Sports. “That’s what I think separates the good from the great is the willingness to pretty much do, you just hate to lose, you want to win because you hate to lose.”
