"I told the coaches that I will gave them an answer tonight, and I committed because that was the best situation for me. I couldn't see myself anywhere else."
The team's state of the art Weatherup Center naturally impressed King on his Tempe visit, but it was actually something much more basic that eventually led him to his pledge.
"They showed me how well the staff takes cares of their athletes and how much they care about you," King explained. "They showed me how they are willing to prepare you for the next level."
Coach Sendek was accompanied by assistants coaches Dedrique Taylor and Lamont Smith during the visit. King mentioned that he announced his decision towards the end of their meeting.
"I knew before they came to visit me that I was going to commit to them," King admitted. "They told me everything I heard on my unofficial visit but it was good for my parents to hear what the coaches had to say.
"My parents like how close the school is to home and that they can come see my games. They saw what an immdiate impact I can make there as a freshman."
When King did announce his decision to the Sun Devil staff, it was an exciting moment for both sides.
"Even though I knew that I was going to commit before the visit, I had chills when I told them that I'm committing," King said, "and they were very happy too."
