Texas A&M Football starting quarterback Haynes King will change the entire offensive scheme
Earlier, I mentioned that Haynes King will have a huge impact on the way this team plays football early in the year. In short, they’ll run the ball more. But that won’t entirely just include Isaiah Spiller and Devon Achane, the team’s top two runnningback options. The run game will also include an extra-large dose of King this season.
I know I’ve spoken a lot about King’s ability to run the football but I cannot stress this enough — he’s a true threat on the ground. To add to that, he isn’t the type of quarterback who has a golden arm worth going all-out to protect. When I say that, I’m referring to the fact that Fisher won’t be afraid to run his starting quarterback without fear of injury.
As a result, we’ll almost definitely see many more designed run plays. We’ll see more RPOs, options, and any other effort to get King running the ball. This, in itself, will open up the passing game even further — leading me to my next point.
King might have the opportunity to bomb the ball deep. With a scheme that is almost certain to be extremely run-heavy, opposing defenses could be lulled to sleep, giving King and his offense the opportunity to effectively run the play-action.
It may take this offense a while to get going, but the potential here is limitless.
