ASU in front for Las Vegas OL

Arizona State has made a great impression to this point on Keenen King and is well positioned to land the offensive lineman.

Las Vegas offensive linemen Keenen King told in April that Arizona State was his early leader after an unofficial visit.

Two months later that is still the case. The Sun Devils are still in the lead.

“As of right now, that’s my top school that’s offered me,” King said.

King is a 6-foot-4, 302-pound offensive tackle prospect from Arbor View High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is a 3-star tackle. He is the No. 1 tackle in Nevada, the No. 10 tackle in the West and the No. 73 tackle in the country.

King said he also has some interest in Oregon State and Washington State. He reportedly holds a scholarship offer from both schools.

But, ASU coaches are taking advantage of King’s current proximity to Arizona.

King said he has headed down south twice recently to visit ASU. He watched the spring game and watched a regular season game last year. He said he also took part in a satellite camp last summer.

So far, King said he has not made trips to either Oregon State or Washington State.

King said the fact ASU is close to home is one of the reasons he has it as his top school.

Because the trip to Tempe is only takes about five hours, King said he might make another unofficial trip this summer.

King is also still interested in Sun Devils because his relationship with the coaching staff. He said he is mainly recruited by wide receivers coach DelVaughn Alexander but has spoken with most of the coaching staff including offensive line coach Chris Thomsen.

King said he wants to see another game again. He said we will make one of his official trips to ASU this fall to see a game with his parents.

King does plan on seeing other campuses though. He said he plans on taking a trip to see Cal, Oregon, Oregon State and Washington State in August.

King said he hopes to make his commitment before the start of his high school season. Going forward, King said the Sun Devils have already done a fine job recruiting him. Now he said he has to weigh his options.

“As of right now it’s just a waiting game,” King said. “I’m just thinking in my head all the factors and just making sure it’s where I want to be for a couple years. I’m just waiting and making sure.”
