Class of 2013 Lineman One To Watch

Dillon, S.C., standout Bryce King talks about his visit to Auburn and the schools he's looking at every early in his recruitment.

Dillon, S.C.--While his teammates Kwinton Smith and D.J. Park have gotten much of the attention this spring and rightfully so with both being among the top upcoming seniors and juniors in the South, another 2013 prospect is quickly making a name for himself as well.

A 6-4, 280 center who could play any of the inside positions on the offensive line, Bryce King teams with Park to give Dillon High one of the top offensive line duos in the South in the next two seasons. Over the weekend King made a visit to Auburn to check out Coach Gene Chizik's program along with Smith and Park and said he enjoyed everything about the trip.

"It was good," King tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I like the school. I like how it's in a small town. I want to be in a small town so I can get to know people and the coaches real well. The stadium is awesome. I just like the surroundings."

Saying he has received an offer from LSU, King said at the moment he's still very open to schools from all over and just wants an opportunity to show what he can do.

"I'm really interested in everyone," King said. "I'll take whatever school I can get or whoever wants me. We've been to South Carolina, Clemson, East Carolina, North Carolina State and Auburn."

One of the teams that King said he'll keep a close eye on now is Auburn following his visit. Hitting it off with Auburn offensive line Coach Jeff Grimes and the rest of the staff, King said he didn't know what to expect out of the Tigers but now he's watching to see what happens next.

"I didn't know that much about Auburn, but I have learned a lot since seeing them in person," King said. "They are a team I‘ll continue to learn more about in the future."
