No, NFHS did not adopt that rule. Feinting to 3B (or 2B) in the set while in contact is not a balk as long as there is a proper step. But your wording is a little problematic in that if the pitcher remained in contact with the plate when he turned to 1B (a highly unlikely occurrence) he would have to throw there.
