  08/13/22 - TE Landen KingrJr/2026, Utah

  Auburn tight end coach Brad Bedell knows that in the days of the transfer portal and NIL, he'll constantly have to recruit players on his team to keep them happy. Bedell might not have expected to lose Landen King to new wide receiver coach Ike Hilliard. The excellent news for Bedell and Hilliard is that the 6?5 220-pound sophomore could become a sensation for the Tigers in a position needing some depth. "I lost that coin flip," Bedell said with a smile during a session on Wednesday with reporters. "We love his work ethic and talent. He's a unique athlete." King caught five passes for 59 yards last season as a freshman tight end. His targets should go up now that he'll be expected to do less as a run blocker, which could benefit whoever wins Auburn's ongoing starting quarterback competition. His sole touchdown came in overtime of the Iron Bowl loss against Alabama at Jordan-Hare last season. "He adds something to the wide receiver room that we didn't have," receivers coach Ike Hilliard said. "He's extremely talented. We want to find ways to get him more involved. He'll have to learn more about the position as we go along here. But his size and skill set are going to help expand what we do on offense." - Birmingham News
