Texas A&M QB Haynes King enters transfer portal

Texas A&M quarterback Haynes King entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer Friday, with freshman cornerback Denver Harris also announcing on Twitter that he will enter the portal.

King threw for 1,220 yards, 7 touchdowns and 6 interceptions in six games this season for the Aggies. He was the No. 46 prospect in the 2020 class out of Longview, Texas, and signed with the Aggies with plenty of fanfare surrounding his college potential.

He redshirted his first season in 2020 and started the first two games in 2021 before suffering a season-ending injury. King once again started the opener in 2022 but had a roller-coaster season that included another injury.

Texas A&M, which finished with a 5-7 record, does not have a quarterback committed in the 2023 class. The Aggies could go to the transfer portal to add depth at the position.

LSU transfer quarterback Max Johnson played in four games this season, throwing three touchdowns, and true freshman Conner Weigman saw action in five games, throwing for 896 yards, 8 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

Harris, the No. 25 recruit in the Class of 2022, played in five games this season while recording 14 tackles and two pass breakups.
