Atascocite WR/TE Landen King (6'5, 210) announced a decommitment from Texas on Friday afternoon. King committed to the Longhorns on April 26, so he was only on the commitment list for just over three weeks. 

"I would like to thank Coach Herman and the Texas staff for giving me an amazing opportunity, but I would like to say that I will be de-committing from the University of Texas," King posted on social media.

King holds offers from schools like Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Alabama, Auburn, Arizona State, Georgia, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Purdue, Oklahoma State, and more. 

King is rated as a DCTF three-star prospect and was one of the top performers at the Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 in Houston. 

Landen King Scouting Report: King has good feet and quickness for a prospect with his size and frame. He is a long strider but gets up to top speed quickly. He is a jumbo wide receiver who fits in well as a flex tight end option in college. His combination of skills will make him a matchup nightmare. He is not a traditional point of attack tight end but versatile in that he can pull and wrap to cover linebackers, and he is a physical blocker for fellow receivers in the quick screen game and the run game.

As a junior in 2019, King collected 53 receptions for 853 yards and nine touchdowns to earn first-team all-district honors.
