Atascocita three-star tight end Landen King took to twitter on Monday to announce his commitment to Auburn:
The Humble, Texas athlete originally pledged his commitment to the Texas Longhorns in April before announcing his de-commitment from Tom Herman’s program on May 22nd.
Auburn initially offered a position on the squad to the 6-foot-5 pass catcher on April 3 and surged in the recruitment once King announced his de-commitment from Texas.
As a junior, King earned first-team all-district honors in Texas District 22-6A after catching 53 passes for 853 yards and nine touchdowns. King averaged 16.1 yards per reception as he helped Atascocita to a 12-2 record and a Texas Class 6A Division I state quarterfinal berth.
When asked what played a major role in recruiting him to Auburn, King said “All of the coaching staff… literally every single one.”
King chose Auburn over programs like Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas A&M, TexasTech, Washington and many more.
