Pitt To Receive Visit From Auburn Transfer TE/WR Landen King
Some news on Pitt’s recruitment of Auburn transfer tight end/wide receiver Landen King.
A couple days after extending him an offer, it appears as though King will be getting a closer look at the Pitt program.
The talented 6’5″, 220-pound athlete tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he has a trip planned to Pittsburgh.
“I’ve been recruited by Coach Salem since high school, so the relationship is already there,” said King. “I think I’ll be visiting sometime next week.”
Last season, King had one reception for 24 yards, while in 2021, had five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.
Considering their current depth chart and the fact that they just signed USC transfer tight end Malcolm Epps, it’s likely that Pitt is attempting to recruit King as a wide receiver.
King was a 2021 three-star recruit from Humble, Texas and signed with Auburn over other offers from Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Houston, Michigan State, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Ole Miss, Penn State, Purdue, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Virginia Tech and Washington.
Along with Pitt, King has received recent offers from California, Utah, Colorado and Louisville.
King will have 3 seasons of eligibility remaining.
