Spring football is in full effect in Longview and with that, so has the recruiting.

Texas A&M became the 26th overall offer for Lobo quarterback Haynes King on Wednesday, according to Lobo head coach John King.

King's latest offer came a day after 2020 defensive lineman Sawyer Goram-Welch saw his recruiting list hit double digits with an opportunity from Tulane.

The Aggies were the latest among a parade of college coaches making the rounds at Longview as the Lobos hit the field for spring practice.  SMU, Ole Miss, SMU, Houston and Texas State visited the Lobos on Monday while Oregon, Baylor, A&M, UCLA, New Mexico State, Incarnate Word, Troy and Arkansas State stopped by Wednesday.

Texas A&M is the third of the four Power 5 conference schools in Texas to offer King. The Aggies join TCU and Baylor on King's list of in-state schools on a list that includes Auburn, Tennessee, LSU, UCLA and Ole Miss.

Since helping guide the Lobos to the 2018 Class 6A, Division II state title, King picked up All-District honors as a member of the Lobo basketball team and was a regional qualifier in three events on the track team. He competed on the 400M relay, the 800M relay and was the district and area champion in discus.

Memphis offered Goram-Welch this past Saturday and joins the likes of Texas Tech, SMU, Illinois and Southern Miss on the list for the rising 2020 prospect.
