"That's what I'm trying to find out when I get down there," he says of Auburn's standing. "Tennessee and Texas Tech are battling. I felt good at Tennessee, but I also do with Texas Tech. That's why they're battling. Now I'm trying to see where Auburn is going to fit in."
Asked what he looks to see at Auburn, King responds, "Just the environment and how comfortable I feel down there."
On Wednesday King got a visit from several of the Auburn coaches. "Just about all of them really," he notes. "Coach Trooper (Taylor), Coach Gene (Chizik) and Coach (Ted) Roof."
Even if Auburn shows King enough to be his leader, he says he's going to hold off on an announcement.
"It'll be on signing day," he says.
