Former Texas Longhorns Commit Pledges to Auburn

Tight end Landen King was committed to four nearly a month before decommitting in May.

Former Texas Longhorns tight end pledge Landen King has found a new landing spot with the Auburn Tigers. 

King is the No. 103 player in Texas, No. 36 tight end and No. 765 overall prospect in the 2021 class according to 247Sports.

King has offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Houston, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech among others.

The Atascocita High School product was committed to the Longhorns for nearly a month before backing out of his verbal pledge in late May. 

The Longhorns have since turned to the Midwest in their search for their next tight end. They offered the nation's No. 2 tight end in Thomas Fidone and talented Colorado prospect Gunner Helm.
