Again I think as long as Tennessee is open and transparent about whats going on with both Bailey and King, there isnt a problem. Both of these kids are competitive, I dont see either shying away from competition. And honestly you're going to face heavy competition at every school in the SEC and major schools like these kids are being recruited by. If you want to be a lock as a starter go to a lesser program. No matter how favorable the roster if you're not getting it done someone else will replace you, IE Jacob Eason at UGA. I just would hope both kids pick where they fit in best bc thats what allows them to develop as players. I also hope that's UT.

Bama used two spots on four star QBs recently. IF there's any position where you burn an extra spot on a player its at QB. We burned a spot of freaking Chryst recently after all.

We (A&M) recruit East Texas really well. We get a lot of players out of Lufkin, Longview, etc. close enough to where family can see kids play.

Jimbo and co. are going all in on King.

Chryst was a necessary evil...that gets overlooked. JG gets hurt last year and you’re riding with Shrout or McBride. Any coach worth their salt avoids that. The Eason example would resonate better with me if he and Fromm were in the same recruiting class. As previously stated, Bailey then Vandergriff gets no argument. The “afraid of competition” point’s been dead to me since noted wise family man Zac Smith used the term to shade JG when he chose UT. 😒

I think Bailey’s better tbh.
I've only seen a few highlights of bailey so I may be wrong but I've seen a few of Longview's whole games with some friends who went there and he's really impressive. So I'm just basing off of the fact that i have a hard time believing there's a qb that is demonstrably better than king. I'm definitely not saying bailey is bad and I'm happy he's on board and would be fine if we keep him and don't recruit king. Just in my opinion king looks like he could be the best in the class. And the competition is at least as good if not better.

I know and respect Texas high school competition. I tend to think Georgia and Florida DB’s are better. That factors into my opinion that Bailey is a more sophisticated passer than King. I can understand why you disagree. “Demonstrably better”? No...but better nonetheless imo.

Sounds like King may be that all-valuable "dual-threat."

247Sports has learned that Longview (Texas) High Top247 quarterback Haynes King will visit Texas A&M and Tennessee the next two weekends. Lone Star State insider Gabe Brooks also confirmed the ballyhooed quarterback will take those trips.

King ranks as the No. 2 pro-style passer in the country and No. 32 player overall in the Top247 Player Rankings. He lead Longview to a 16-0 season last fall en route to a state championship, throwing for 3,877 yards and 42 touchdowns with just four interceptions. The talented athlete also ran for 664 yards and eight more scores.

The buzz around this recruitment says the Vols are in terrific shape to land King. They have just three scholarship quarterbacks on the depth chart with a huge need at the position this cycle. He last visited Knoxville in March and this time returns for an official.

Damn that's exciting to read.
